HC Deb 05 July 1937 vol 326 c2
1. Mr. Day

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India the present strength of the Royal Air Force in India?

The Under-Secretary of State for India (Lord Stanley)

I would refer the hon. Member to page 277 of the Indian Defence Services Budget Estimates for 1937–38, a copy of which will be found in the Library of the House, from which he will see that provision has been made for a strength of 250 officers and 1,884 airmen.

Mr. Day

Can the Under-Secretary of State say whether any early increase is contemplated?

Lord Stanley

Not that I know of.
