89. Air-Commodore Harvey
asked the Ministers of Supply how many de Havilland Moth training aircraft have been, or are in the process of being, broken up during the last 12 months.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss
During the last 12 months 239 Tiger Moths have been broken up, under a contract placed by my Department, to recover components and spares needed by the Royal Air Force. I am informed by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Air that the Royal Air Force have themselves also broken up 81 during this period, with the same object.
