§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what is the present strength, officers and men, of the Air Forces stationed in Great Britain and Northern Ireland; and how many of these have pilot's certificates?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
The present normal home strength is 2,644 officers and 29,012 airmen; 2,092 of these are pilots. I should add that a proportion of this personnel is temporarily overseas at the present time as a result of the emergency.
