HC Deb 24 February 1943 vol 387 c152
28. Wing-Commander Hulbert

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether Army glider pilots receive their training from Royal Air Force instructors; and how many hours solo flying is carried out prior to these pilots being posted to glider units from training establishment?

Sir A. Sinclair

With the exception of Army drill and weapon training, Army personnel posted for training as glider pilots receive all their instruction, both in the air and on the ground, from Royal Air Force instructors. It would not be in the public interest to give the information asked for in the second part of the Question.

Wing-Commander Hulbert

While it may not be in the public interest, does my right hon. Friend realise that it is of very much interest to some Members of the House?
