HC Deb 01 May 1935 vol 301 c350
6. Commander MARSDEN

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty intend to alter the existing arrangements with the Air Council for the purpose of enabling Naval petty officers to qualify as pilots in the Fleet air-arm under the same conditions as sergeant-pilots of the Royal Air Force now employed in the Fleet air-arm?


The existing arrangements are the result of a Government decision made in 1928, and could not be altered by departmental action.
