§ 82. Sir A. V. Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will make a statement on the aircrew position in the Royal Air Force; and what shortages of personnel he estimates there will be in two or three years hence.
§ Mr. J. Amery
The position has improved in recent months, but we still need more recruits. In particular, as our equipment grows more complex we shall need more recruits with high academic and personal qualities. This is, however, a long term problem. I do not foresee any shortage of aircrew in the next two or three years.
