HC Deb 11 October 1944 vol 403 cc1730-1
21. Mr. Tinker

asked the Secretary of State for Air the position of those who have been seconded to the R.A.F. as education officers as regards gratuity and demobilisation.

Sir A. Sinclair

The majority of the teachers who have been seconded by local authorities to the Royal Air Force educational service are employed and paid as civilians, although they have been granted commissions. A minority, who are not employed on educational work, are mobilised, and will be treated in regard to gratuity and release in exactly the same way as other officers in the Royal Air Force.
