cial pilots' licences who were supported in whole or in part by the Board of Trade at the following training schools, namely, the College of Air Training at Hamble, the Airwork Services Training at Perth, the Northern Air School at Carlisle and the Oxford Air Training School, giving the separate figures for each school and also indicating the percentage of students in each case who completed their course successfully.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

No. I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer my right hon. Friend gave him on 11th February.—[Vol. 795, c. 346.]
