HC Deb 19 July 1944 vol 402 cc173-4
15. Sir Irving Albery

asked the Secretary of State for Air what steps are taken, when middle-aged officers become redundant, to facilitate their services being used in some other employment connected with the Air Force or other employment of national importance.

Captain Balfour

R.A.F. officers are not considered redundant until all possibilities of finding employment for them in the Service have been fully explored. The responsibility for finding civil employment for such officers rests with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour and National Service. My Department, however, is able to assist in various ways, and, in particular, in finding civil employment on work connected wth the Royal Air Force.
