§ Mr. W. ROCH
asked whether a scheme for a Flying Corps was prepared by the staff at Simla prior to the War; and, if so, whether such scheme was put into force?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
The establishment of a flying school was sanctioned in 1913. A few machines were supplied, and additional machines were on order when war broke out. Both the machines and the personnel were then transferred to the War Office at their urgent request.
