§ 37. Mr. Kenneth Lindsay
asked the Secretary of State for Air how many of the 11,000 teachers in the R.A.F. are now serving as education officers; how many are engaged on technical instruction; how many are employed as physical education instructors; and how many could be spared, without affecting the efficiency of the fighting service, to repair the ravaged system of national education.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
The answer to the first part of the Question is "None, Sir." I regret that the information asked for in the second and third parts of the Question is not readily available. As for the last part of the Question, I can see no immediate prospect, in view of war requirements and the man-power position, of extending the present arrangements for release from the Royal Air Force.
