HC Deb 02 July 1941 vol 372 c1326
14. Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the work being done by the Women's Junior Air Corps meets with the approval of the Air Ministry; whether any assistance is being given to this organisation; and will he make a statement on the position?

The Secretary of State for Air (Sir Archibald Sinclair)

This organisation has not received official approval of the Air Ministry, but in order to avoid unintentional breaches of the law, my Department has advised unofficially on certain questions of intended uniform, badges and ranks. No further assistance is contemplated. As I informed the hon. Member on 12th June, in view of the fact that girls can now enter the Women's Auxiliary Air Force at the age of 17½ I do not think it would be justifiable in present circumstances to make official arrangements for the training of girls intending to enter the Women's Auxiliary Air Force.
