HC Deb 13 November 1941 vol 376 c66W
Major Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he can indicate the approximate cost, to date, of newspaper advertising in respect of those published messages for recruitment that are specially directed to persons in reserved occupations?

Sir A. Sinclair

Newspaper advertising for recruits for the Royal Air Force from among men in reserved occupations has to date cost approximately £47,000. Of this, £15,000 has been spent on advertising for ground tradesmen and the rest on advertising for air crews. Advertising for the former has now been discontinued.
