asked the Minister of Aircraft Production what change is being made in connection with the position of Director-General of Production in his Ministry; and what terms will govern any new appointment?

Yes, Sir. I very much regret that Sir Charles Craven, who has done such excellent work as Controller-General at my Ministry, has been compelled to resign that office under orders from his doctor. I know that my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, my predecessor and myself are very grateful to Sir Charles Craven for the great ser-vice he has rendered to the country in the production of aircraft. I hope in the course of a few days to be able to announce the arrangements which I shall in consequence make.

Will this distinguished gentleman return to the management of Vickers, or will he remain mainly occupied by the right hon. and gallant Gentleman's Department?

If I put a Question down, will my hon. and gallant Friend be able to supply information to the House?
