Mr. Heald

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the value of the Flying Scholarships Scheme in stimulating interest in the Air Training Corps and in encouraging young men to enter the Royal Air Force as aircrew, he will increase the number of such scholarships.

Mr. A. Henderson

Yes. In view of the great value of the Scholarship Scheme in this field, I am glad to be able to announce that the number of scholarships to be awarded in the present financial year will be increased to 300.
