HC Deb 17 May 1950 vol 475 cc153-4W
32. Sir W. Darling

asked the Secretary of State for Air, in view of the three air displays by Air Training Corps and the Royal Air Force display to be held in England in May, June and July, what arrangements are being made for similar displays in Scotland.

Mr. A. Henderson

I am not aware of any plans by A.T.C. units in Scotland to hold rallies similar to those which are being held in England, but I can promise that any proposals from Scottish units for such events will be sympathetically considered by my Department. I regret that it is not possible to hold an air display in Scotland this year similar to the forthcoming R.A.F. Display at Farnborough, but the need for maintaining normal R.A.F. training programmes precludes more than one display on this scale being held.
