§ Mr. Mitchison
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many R.A.F. personnel are employed on work directly or indirectly for the benefit of B.O.A.C. by way of pioneering routes or preparing aerodromes or otherwise.
§ Mr. Strachey
In order to meet requirements of national importance, the Royal Air Force has, in the course of its wartime duties, provided many facilities for the British Overseas Airways Corporation in accordance with the terms of the White Paper of March, 1943. Under these conditions I am afraid it is not practicable to give specific figures for the number of men concerned.
