HC Deb 19 July 1944 vol 402 c174
16. Mr. Key

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he has received the Report of the Committee he set up to inquire into the functions and organisation of the Royal Air Force Educational Services; and if he is now in a position to make a statement on the duties and conditions of employment of education officers in the R.A.F. or to recommend any changes.

Captain Balfour

The Committee have a large and important field to cover and I am advised that it will be some time before they are in a position to report.

Mr. Key

In view of the growing apprehension among these men, will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman try to expedite the operations of this Committee?

Captain Balfour

The chairman and members of the Committee have a very wide field to cover, and a very difficult problem. They are doing their very best to cover it. When they have reported, my right hon. Friend must have adequate time to consider all the issues on which they are reporting.
