HC Deb 19 January 1949 vol 460 c140
9. Mr. Sharp

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether 308330 A/C M.F. Mallinson, 107 M.U., M.E.F., who is a clerk provisioning in Release Group 75, and whose release has been previously deferred, will be returned to the U.K. in time for his demobilisation during January.

Mr. A. Henderson

I regret that the release of a number of airmen serving in the Midle East, including A.C. Mallinson, will be slightly delayed because of a mechanical breakdown in two of the ships scheduled to bring them home. The best alternative arrangements are being made but, owing to the shortage of shipping, it will, I fear, not be possible to get these airmen home before February.
