HC Deb 04 August 1943 vol 391 cc2275-6
18. Mr. John Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for Air why Royal Air Force personnel in the Middle East are not issued with sun glasses?

Sir A. Sinclair

Anti-glare glasses are now being issued to all officers and men of the Royal Air Force in the Mediterranean area as supplies permit.

Mr. Dugdale

When is it anticipated that personnel will actually receive a supply? Are they on their way now?

Sir A. Sinclair

Large numbers of personnel have had them the whole time the fighting has been going on in the Mediterranean area. It is possible now to increase the issues, and they will be increased as supplies increase.
