HC Deb 28 February 1945 vol 408 cc1361-2
19. Squadron-Leader Sir Gifford Fox

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in future, he will insist on the weighing of all luggage and personal belongings of passengers travelling by Transport Command so as to ensure that there is no question of a verbal estimate of weight given by the passenger himself being accepted without an adequate check being made.

Sir A. Sinclair

It is the rule in Transport Command that each passenger and his baggage should be weighed. If my hon. and gallant Friend has evidence that this rule is not being observed, I should be grateful if he would send me particulars.
