HC Deb 09 July 1952 vol 503 c96W
86. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Civil Aviation how many civil air attachés are maintained overseas; and when he proposes to abolish these.

Mr. Maudling

Two civil air attachés are maintained overseas at Washington and Cairo. In addition, the Civil Air Adviser to the Commissioner General, South-East Asia, is attached to the Embassy at Bangkok and the Legations at Manila and Saigon. The number of these posts has just been reduced by three, and I am satisfied that the remaining posts should not be abolished at present.
