HC Deb 01 April 1946 vol 421 c109W
Mr. Ward

asked the Minister of Supply how many persons are employed in his Department; how many are qualified pilots; and, of these, how many have completed more than three hours' solo flying in the last six months.

Mr. Woodburn:

The number of non-industrial staff employed in the Ministry of Supply and Aircraft Production on 1st March, 1946—the latest date for which figures are available—was 55,535. I regret that the information asked for in the last two parts of the Question is not available.
