§ 20. Mr. LIDDALL
asked the Secretary of State for Air, whether he can give any assurance that the prospects of promotion for officers and men of the Royal Air Force serving abroad will not be detrimentally affected by the sanctioned increase 1847 in home establishments, and that no suitable man serving abroad will be passed over in favour of airmen immediately available for promotion because serving at home?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
Yes, Sir. My hon. Friend may rest assured that the claims of officers and airmen serving abroad will be in no way prejudiced.
