Mr. Pritt

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will state the total amount of money expended during the last four months on advertising in the public Press for civilian instructors in terms, substantially similar to those appearing in the "News Chronicle" of the 17th October; and how many civilian instructors have been obtained as a result of such advertisements?

Sir K. Wood

About £2,000 has been spent on these advertisements and they have produced over 2,300 applications. One hundred and fifty-eight appointments have been made to date.
