§ Group-Captain Wilcock
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is satisfied that Transport Command of the R.A.F. has been given the neces- 1176W sary priorities in personnel, aircraft and airfields to enable them to handle efficiently and with safety the increasing numbers of passengers now being flown by them.
§ Mr. Strachey
We have given Transport Command the highest priorities that we can. In my statement to the House on 12th October I did, however, draw attention to the immensity of the tasks now facing this Command, and whatever priorities we can accord to them these difficulties inevitably remain to be met and overcome.
