HC Deb 19 July 1944 vol 402 cc174-5
18. Major Gates

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will take the necessary steps to place officers under a similar statutory obligation, as at present applies to other ranks, to maintain their families.

Captain Balfour

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War, to a Question by the hon. Member for Bassetlaw (Mr. Bellenger). The position in the R.A.F. is the same as in the Army.
