§ 24. Mr. Medland
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether gratuities to Regular members of the R.A.F. will be paid on completion of service with wax-service-only ranks, or at the end of their period of Regular service.
§ Mr. Strachey
The question of when their war gratuities will be paid to Regulars has still to be settled for the three Services. But I can say that Regulars whose service continues after the emergency will not have to wait until the end of their Regular service.
§ Mr, Medland
Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind the fact that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush?
