HC Deb 19 November 1936 vol 317 cc1940-1W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether his arrangements for enlisting aircraft apprentices in the Colonies apply to any besides Malta and Palestine; and whether the practice will also be introduced in Cyprus and Gibraltar?


The arrangements for enlisting aircraft apprentices referred to by the hon. Member apply not only in Colonies but in any country where there is a Royal Air Force command. They are therefore available at present in Egypt, Iraq, India, Palestine and Trans-Jordan, Sudan, Aden, Malta, Malaya and Hong Kong. If a Royal Air Force command were to be formed in Cyprus or Gibraltar, the arrangements would apply there.
