asked the Minister of Aircraft Production whether having regard to the services rendered by the Air Transport Auxiliary Corps, he will consider recommending that it shall in the future be known as the Royal Air Transport Auxiliary Corps and that the pilots serving in it shall use the royal crown over the wings worn by them as in the case of pilots in the Royal Air Force?
