§ Mr. Perkins
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that a considerable number of ground engineers employed by Imperial Airways, Limited, at Croydon airport have recently been dismissed; and whether he will state the reason for this?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead
I understand that Imperial Airways Limited have recently discharged three ground engineers, two of whom were probationers. The reason for their discharge, I am informed, was that they were surplus to requirements.
