HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 c1321
22 Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many officers and men are on indefinite release.

Mr. Strachey

There are 909 officers and 10,300 airmen on indefinite release to industry. We have also approved, up to 5th December, 4,932 Class C releases from the Royal Air Force and the Women's Auxiliary Air Force.

Major Legge-Bourke

Is the hon. Gentleman satisfied that the 909 officers and the 10,300 other ranks are fully aware of their entitlement to apply at once for postwar credits and gratuities?

Mr. Strachey

They should be, and this Question and answer may help to make it clear.
