§ Mr. Mander
asked the Secretary of State for Air the composition and objects of the Air Training Corps Council of Welfare?
§ Sir A. Sinclair
The Air Training Corps Council of Welfare originates from the Air Defence Cadet Corps Council which was responsible for administering the Air Defence Cadet Corps movement out of which the Air Training Corps was developed. The Council of Welfare has no formal terms of reference but constitutes a body of informed opinion which I can consult either individually or collectively from time to time on welfare and amenity questions affecting the Air Training Corps. Sums of money and other benefactions which are received from private sources for the benefit of the Air Training Corps, other than sums subscribed locally for the benefit of individual units, are passed to the Council of Welfare and administered under its authority. The present membership is shown below and additional appointments will be made from time to time.
