HC Deb 31 October 1945 vol 415 c425
75. Mr. Driberg

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that a number of airmen are inadequately occupied at an R.A.F. station, of whose identity he has been informed; that they are engaged neither directly nor indirectly in providing transport for repatriation or in the policing of liberated territory; and whether he will take every possible step to detect and to check redundancy at this and other stations, with a view to expediting R.A.F. demobilisation.

The Under-Secretary of State for Air (Mr. Strachey)

This station provides signals training for members of Coastal Command. This Command has fewer aircrews to be trained now, and some of the men under training for aircrew have had to be remustered. The station will be closed down altogether by 31st December.
