HC Deb 03 March 1938 vol 332 c1297W
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.
