§ 31. Sir Ian Orr-Ewing
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many officers and men, respectively, of the Fleet Air Arm have been, and will be, made redundant during the years 1969, 1970 and 1971.
§ Dr. David Owen
None in 1969. In 1970, 18 officers and 802 ratings in the first phase of redundancy. Numbers for the second phase, which extends from April, 1971 to March, 1973, have not yet been finalised, but few discharges are likely in 1971.
