THE Ministry of Aircraft Production is most unfortunate in having been used as the sport of politicians and subjected to a change in its titular head each time there has been a political shuffle. The question of which individual is the Minister at any given moment docs not in point of fact perhaps matter so much as our leaders like to suppose. Unless the momentary holder of the office is of the politically ambitious type who is bent on making his mark at all costs with a view to further advancement—from which the M.A.P. has not suffered—his presence at the head does not notably affect the even tenor of the life of the hardworking, conscientious technical people with whom most of those in the industry come in daily contact.
