§ 17. Sir Frank Sanderson
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that women officers in the Women's Auxiliary Air Force are only receiving a grant of £16 towards their uniform, the average cost of which is £38; and, in view of the fact that the low grant to women officers is, in many cases, causing them serious financial embarrassment, will he consider increasing their allowance for uniform?
§ Sir K. Wood
This matter has recently been under consideration and I am glad to say that the grant is to be increased from £16 to£30.
