asked the Secretary of State for Air, in view of recent pronouncements by the director of the Air Training Corps that one of the chief aims of that organisation is to encourage ex-elementary school boys to train for entry to the Royal Air Force as air crews, how many Air Training Corps cadets whose full-time education was obtained solely at elementary schools passed the examinations for proficiency certificates, pilots and observers, up to 31st July, 1942; what percentage they represent of the estimated total strength of the Air Training Corps; and what percentage of the failures were due to failure in the mathematics paper?
