HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 cc24-5W
129. Major Vernon

asked the Minister of Supply how many airframe designers and draughtsmen are working under his direction; and in what proportion they are divided between civil and Service aeroplanes.

Mr. Woodburn

The Ministry of Supply does not directly undertake the design of aircraft. Airframe designers and draughtsmen employed in the aircraft industry number aproximately 3,700, of whom about 38 per cent. are estimated to be working on civil aircraft.
