39. Marquess of CLYDESDALE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he will give figures to show the difference in the annual costs to the Air Ministry of an active regular day-bomber squadron and an active auxiliary Air Force squadron?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
Figures of total expenditure for each type of squadron cannot be given with precision, but as a rough estimate the annual cost of a regular single-engine day-bomber squadron may be stated as about £100,000, and that of an auxiliary Air Force squadron as about £50,000.
