HC Deb 21 November 1945 vol 416 cc411-2
5. Mr. Edelman

asked the Under secretary of State for Air whether mosquito nets and bush hats have now been issued to 5714 M & E Flight, R.A.F., Singapore, S.E.A.A.F.; whether he will inquire into the measures taken on 12th October at Tanga aerodrome to establish order in a queue for tea; and whether he will take action in order to improve conditions at this airfield, particulars of which have been sent to him.

Mr. Strachey

The answer to the first part of my hon. Friend's Question is, "Yes, Sir." I have already told the House that I am well aware of the very rough conditions which met the R.A.F. Units which on the collapse of Japan were diverted to Singapore, and that active steps have been taken to improve matters.
