asked the Secretary of State for Air what pay and allowances are received by cadets at the Royal Air Force College, Cranwell.

The daily rate of pay is 4s. for the first six months of service, and thereafter 5s. until completion of 12 months service from the date of entry into a cadetship after which the rate is 6s. 6d. Serving airmen selected for cadetships may however retain the rate of pay appropriate to their rank or classification and trade if it is more favourable. Cadets receive clothing allowance and those undergoing aircrew training receive flying instructional pay of 2s. per day.
