HC Deb 11 July 1955 vol 543 c132W
30. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Minister of Supply to what extent the delivery of aircraft to his Department is hindered by the shortage of skilled technicians in the aircraft industry.

Mr. Maudling

Whilst most firms have vacancies for skilled men, these vacancies are few in relation to the numbers employed. Some local problems are inevitable, but the delivery of aircraft is not being seriously hindered on this account.
