HC Deb 17 February 1943 vol 386 c1712
15. Commander Galbraith

asked the Secretary of State for Air the percentage of first-line Royal Air Force squadrons commanded by wing-commanders, squadron-leaders and flight-lieutenants respectively?

Sir A. Sinclair

No first-line squadron in the Royal Air Force is commanded by a flight lieutenant. It would not be in the public interest to state the percentage of first-line squadrons commanded by wing-commanders and squadron-leaders respectively.
