§ Mr. Perkins
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that the Mechanised Transport Corps, of 14, Woodland Road, Bristol, have offered to supply transport and drivers to certain training aerodromes, of which he has 1557W been informed; and what is causing the delay in arriving at some decision in this matter?
§ Sir A. Sinclair
Offers have been received from the Mechanised Transport Corps to supply transport and drivers to certain training units. While I am grateful for these public-spirited offers, it is not considered practicable to rely on voluntary organisations to meet the transport: requirements of the Royal Air Force. The commandant of the corps has now been so informed. I regret that an earlier reply was not given.
