44. Captain BALFOUR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if his attention has been drawn to the recent Admiralty Fleet Order outlining arrangements arrived at between the Admiralty and the Peninsula and Oriental Steamship Company, whereby return tickets to Malta are issued at a special reduced price of £15 to naval ratings below warrant rank; whether the Air Ministry have made similar arrangements for corresponding Air Force ranks serving in the Fleet air-arm aircraft carriers; and, if not, will he endeavour to obtain this concession?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
I am aware of the arrangement to which the hon. and gallant Member refers, and the question of its extension in the manner proposed by him is already under consideration.
