HC Deb 15 March 1939 vol 345 c388
21. Mr. Adamson

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he can state the total number of persons, civil and military, respectively, to be engaged on the staff of the Royal Air Force training school at Brindley Heath, Hednesford, Staffordshire; and the number of trainees to receive instruction, with the approximate period of training they will receive?

Sir K. Wood

The instructional staff of the school will consist of some 560 officers and airmen and some 350 civilians. The course for flight mechanics and flight riggers will be one of 10 months, and the course for fitters, grade II, one of six months. I regret that it would not be in the public interest to give the total number of trainees who will receive instruction.
