§ 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 1731 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.
