HC Deb 09 April 1937 vol 322 c495W
Mr. Lyons

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he will give the numbers of privately-owned aircraft in this country and any other European country for which corresponding figures are available at the latest convenient date in 1937?

Sir P. Sassoon

The number of privately-owned aircraft in the United Kingdom on 31st December, 1936, that is to say civil aircraft exclusive of those used for transport, training, club, joyriding and taxi work, was 668. I regret that no corresponding figures are available for any other European country.
