HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 cc246-7W
129. Mr. Cooper

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Civil Aviation when it is intended to introduce the same terms of service, pay and pension, as apply to the pilots of B.E.A.C, to the pilots flying on internal airlines who were employed previously by the separate companies which have now been absorbed by B.E.A.C.

Mr. Lindgren

The separate companies have not yet been absorbed by British European Airways Corporation, but are operating as agents or associates. Negotiations for acquisition of the companies are proceeding, and when complete British European Airways Corporation hope to take over the existing staffs and assimilate their conditions of service to those already applying to the Corporation's staff.
