HC Deb 09 July 1958 vol 591 cc31-2W
Captain Orr

asked the Secretary of State for Air how many hours of military air trooping have been carried out by the British Overseas Airways Corporation and the British European Airways; and how many by independent air operators, during the last six months.

Mr. Ward

I regret that figures are not available in this form. I can say, however, that in the six months ending on 31st May, B.O.A.C. carried about 3,900 passengers on trooping flights, and the independent operators about 51,000.
