HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c202W
63. Mr. Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for Air what progress has been made with the scheme to train Royal Air Force aircrew personnel in Canada; whether it is proposed to extend further the scope of this overseas flying training to include other areas in the western hemisphere; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Crawley

Up to now 224 men have gone to Canada to be trained as pilots or navigators. The future scope of the arrangements for giving flying training overseas is at present under discussion, and my right hon. and learned Friend is not yet in a position to make a statement.
