HC Deb 28 November 1945 vol 416 c1488W
Wing-Commander Hulbert

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many aircraft captains in Transport Command have had flying experience with B.O.A.C. or other civil air lines.

Mr. Strachey

I am afraid that the figures are not readily available, but there certainly cannot be very many. At this stage we could hardly expect civil airline experience to be among the many qualifications necessary for the captains of aircraft in Transport Command.
