HC Deb 21 July 1954 vol 530 c126W
84. Mr. P. Williams

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what aircraft are available for moving an Army division from the United Kingdom to any central point of Middle Eastern defence; and how long any such move would take.

Mr. Ward

If such a move were necessary, use would be made of civil as well as military air transport. The length of the move would depend on the circumstances prevailing at the time.
