HC Deb 25 November 1941 vol 376 c622W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Air in what respect Service status enhances the value of civilian instructors; and what is the nature of the economies which the grant of Service status makes possible?

Sir A. Sinclair

Civilian instructors have no responsibility for the supervision and discipline of their pupils when they are not receiving technical instruction. These duties have accordingly to be undertaken by others. The grant of Service status makes it possible to avoid this duplication and achieve economies in establishments.
