§ 30. Mr. EVERARD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many civil flying training schools are in existence; and whether it is proposed to increase the number, in view of the required increase of pilots for the Royal Air Force.
§ Sir P. SASSOON
There are now 13 civil flying training schools engaged under contract with the elementary training of Royal Air Force pilots to which number they were raised to meet the needs of expansion. Additional schools for the purpose of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, to the number of about 20, are in contemplation.
§ Mr. EVERARD
Can my right hon. Friend tell me how many pupils there are in the schools already in existence?
