HC Deb 17 October 1945 vol 414 cc1175-6W
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- 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.
