HC Deb 28 June 1944 vol 401 c702
16. Sir John Mellor

asked the Secretary of State for Air why local leave has not been allowed for personnel of the R.A.F. stationed in Iceland.

Sir A. Sinclair

There is no ban on local leave in Iceland. In practice, few applications are made because of the absence of suitable facilities for leave in Iceland.

Sir J. Mellor

Is my right hon. Friend aware that a number of men serving in the R.A.F. in Iceland are under the impression that it is banned?

Sir A. Sinclair

No, Sir, I was not aware of that. If my hon. Friend can give me any particulars about it, I will gladly look into the matter.
