HC Deb 20 January 1943 vol 386 c191
23. Mr. Hannah

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is satisfied with the results of substituting young girls for men over 50 years of age in the Royal Observer Corps?

Sir A. Sinclair

It is too early yet to pronounce upon this matter, but there is no reason to suppose that the results will be less satisfactory than in the case of similar employment in the operations rooms of Fighter Command.

Mr. Hannah

May I ask whether an adequate number of really competent girls have been found for this work?

Sir A. Sinclair

They are being found.
