I have read elsewhere that Thomas Inskip did much to prepare the country for the 'Battle of Britain' by increasing the pre war production of fighter aircraft.Furthermore I have heard that his emphasis on fighters was opposed by Churchill and other ministers of the time.

Can anyone comment on this?

PS I share the Viscount Caldecote's surname but our geneaolgical origins diverged some 4 centuries ago.



Shouldn't Lord Chancellor be under the Legal Offices rather than the political offices? It was a position in the government, but so were Attorney General and Solicitor General; the responsibilities as head of the Judiciary and immediate superior to Lord Chief Justice was just as important.--86.181.43.41 (talk) 02:37, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
