HC Deb 24 May 1966 vol 729 c72W
Captain Kerby

asked the Secretary of State for Defence why H.M.S. "Eagle's" Vixen Squadron has a shortfall of three pilots and five observers for her 16 aircraft.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

H.M.S. "Eagle" is manned to meet her current operational commitments: we do not as a rule give details of the strength of individual front line squadrons.
