HC Deb 29 October 1919 vol 120 c706W

asked the Under-Secretary of State to the Air Ministry if he will state how many men are still employed at No. 2 Northern Aircraft Depot; and what are they doing?

Major-General SEELY

This repair depot is being closed down. The strength at present is 891, or 33 per cent. less than it was at the end of September. The strength will be reduced to a care and maintenance party by the middle of next month. Since the 15th October, when repair work ceased, the staff have been employed in clearing up and concentrating stores for disposal.
