HC Deb 18 December 1946 vol 431 c390W
94. Mr. S. Shephard

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he is aware that an order has been issued by No. 4 Group of the R.A.F. to the effect that Sunday flying for A.T.C. cadets is to be discontinued until further notice; and, since Sunday is the only day available for working cadets, what action does he propose to take in the matter.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

I am unaware of an order having been issued by No. 4 Group to this effect. I am afraid, however, that Transport Command may have to issue such an order in the near future in order to avoid ground airmen having to work seven days a week. In the meantime, I understand that No. 4 Group stations are giving A.T.C. cadets the maximum amount of flying of which the stations are capable.
