HC Deb 29 November 1926 vol 200 cc799-800
2. Mr. KELLY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the Government propose to publish the memorandum recently submitted by the Indian Air Board to the Government of India?


The answer is in the affirmative.

3. Mr. KELLY

also asked the Under-Secretary of State the number of Indians employed in the Royal Air Force in India, and whether there is any limitation as regards the capacity in which they are employed?


Royal Air Force units in India are in the same position as units of the British Army in that country—i.e., they are units of the Imperial Forces and not part of the Indian Army. These units comprise no enlisted Indian personnel but, as in the case of British Army units, Indians are engaged as civilians for various duties. The number of Indians at present so employed is about 1,000.
