HC Deb 24 November 1909 vol 13 c187
Lord BALCARRES (for Mr. Ashley)

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what percentage of those to be employed in aeronautical work in the Navy will be drawn from the engineering branch?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. McKenna)

The number of engineers who will be employed on aeronautical work depends entirely on the future requirements of this service, of which no estimate can at present be made.
