§ Mr. W. Edwards
asked the Secretary of State for Air what number of Air Force cadets have been affected by the mining ballot up to the present; and how many have actually been drafted to work in the mines.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
Men accepted for flying duties in the Royal Air Force are excluded from the ballot. I regret that the number of other men who might have joined the R.A.F. but for the operation of the ballot is not readily ascertainable.
