19. Captain BALFOUR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether it is proposed to increase the Royal Air Force Far East Command establishment at the Singapore base; and whether it is proposed to make this an Air Officer's command, so as to give the Royal Air Force commander equivalent rank to the naval and military commanders?
§ Sir P. SASSOON
The establishment of the Royal Air Force Command, Far East, is at present under examination. The cognate question of raising its status must await consideration of the main question.
Can my right hon. Friend say when it is likely that any decision will be come to, in view of the fact that this matter has been under discussion for several months?
