HC Deb 06 July 1949 vol 466 cc2144-5
66. Air-Commodore Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for Air how many officers' and other ranks' married quarters were scheduled for completion during 1949, up to the present date; and how many have been made ready for use.

The Under-Secretary of State for Air (Mr. Geoffrey de Freitas)

We aim to complete 2,000 married quarters in the present financial year. No intermediate schedules were fixed. Nearly 1,500 have been made ready for use since last December.

67. Mr. Basil Nield

asked the Secretary of State for Air what schemes are in operation at Royal Air Force stations whereunder the wives of officers and men occupying married quarters may leave their children in a nursery on the station while they are away and whether such a nursery service is in operation at Sealand.

Mr. de Freitas

There is no official scheme, but at some stations the parents of young children get together and organise a nursery service. There is such a service at the Royal Air Force Station, Sealand. It is open two afternoons a week, and the mothers take turns in supervising it.
