HC Deb 06 April 1939 vol 345 c3038W
Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will state the number of apprentices considered by the Air Council for cadetships in the years 1936, 1937, and 1938, respectively?

Sir K. Wood

Selections for cadetships are made twice a year from among the apprentices passing out of the training establishments. All those who have obtained at least 70 per cent, marks in the Passing-Out Examination are considered on each occasion. The numbers considered in 1936, 1937 and 1938 were 122, 130 and 191, respectively.
