HC Deb 03 July 1930 vol 240 cc2146-7

May I ask your Ruling, Mr. Speaker, with regard to Question 79? If I put a question down and neither the Minister nor his representative attends, have I any redress?


The hon. Member must hope for the best.


May I put a question dawn for Friday morning? Can the Prime Minister tell us what has happened to the Under-Secretary of State?

79. Colonel HOWARD-BURY (later)

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he has yet come to a decision with regard to the wearing of civilian clothes by members of the Royal Air Force when off duty and bringing them under the same conditions as exist in the Army at the present time?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for AIR (Mr. Montague)

The regulations governing this question are at present in course of revision, and my Noble Friend has decided to authorise various relaxations of the present rules in the direction desired. When the revised regulations are ready for promulgation, I will send the hon. and gallant Member a copy.
