HC Deb 23 October 1961 vol 646 c18W
59. Mr. Driberg

asked the Minister of Aviation if, in the course of his investigation into the causes of fatal accidents involving aircraft owned by private companies, he will pay particular attention to the standard of efficiency required of pilots employed by these companies; and if he will ascertain, and inform the House, how many pilots who have been dismissed by British Overseas Airways Corporation and British European Airways are now flying privately-owned aircraft.

Mr. Thorneycroft

I am concerned to ensure that the highest standards of efficiency are met by the pilots of all British companies.

The answer to the second half of the Question is that this information is not available.
