HC Deb 13 March 1940 vol 358 c1173
22. Dr. Little

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will give the assurance that in future no person from Northern Ireland serving in His Majesty's Royal Air Force will be permitted to go on leave without first being properly clothed and equipped for his journey by land and sea?

Sir K. Wood

All Royal Air Force personnel are provided with suitable clothing for any journey by land or sea, and before proceeding on leave they are inspected to ensure that they are properly clothed.
