HC Deb 24 August 1945 vol 413 cc968-9W
Flying-Officer Bowden

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if, he is prepared to state the policy with regard to the numbers of young men accepted for air crew duties, who have been waiting many months to be called into training.

Mr. Strachey

Now that the war is over it will not be possible to provide air crew training for more than a few of these men. Most of them will be required to undertake other forms of national service and will shortly be notified of the alternatives open to them.
