§ 86. Mr. Swingler
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air the proportions of expenditure on armed manpower, equipment, and administration, respectively, in the Royal Air Force in each of the last three years for which figures are available.
The following are the figures for Royal Air Force manpower and equipment (including technical supplies):
— 1951–52 1952–53 1953–54 per cent. per cent. per cent. Manpower … 38 32 28 Equipment … 37 47 53
I regret that it is not possible to isolate costs of administration.
