HC Deb 15 July 1919 vol 118 c195
28. Colonel BURN

asked if the young men who enlisted in the Royal Air Force and are now stationed at Upavon Camp, Wilts, are being put through a thorough course of training to make them thoroughly efficient?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Major-General Seely)

I presume that my hon. and gallant Friend is referring to the officers now quartered at the Central Flying School, Upavon. They are there awaiting passages to the various Dominions.

Colonel BURN

Are the men who enlisted in the Royal Flying Corps or the Royal Air Force being usefully employed and instructed in their duties, or are they only doing fatigue duty in the camp?

Major-General SEELY

I was there the other day, and I think everything is being done that could be done in that regard. If the hon. and gallant Gentleman wishes to bring forward a particular point I shall be glad to deal with it.
