HC Deb 13 April 1921 vol 140 c1110
71. Brigadier-General COLVIN

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in order to encourage aviation, he will consider the advisability of enrolling volunteers in the Air Force to be administered by Territorial associations, and to receive free instruction in flying and a grant for uniform on attaining a certain standard of proficiency?

Mr. McCURDY (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. A draft of a scheme for the formation of a Territorial Air Force is now under discussion with the various authorties concerned, and I hope that it may be possible to inaugurate it during the course of the present year.

Brigadier-General COLVIN

Is there any intention of forming a civilian Air Force reserve?


I must ask for notice of that question.
