HC Deb 18 March 1953 vol 513 cc19-20
31. Mr. Deedes

asked the Undersecretary of State for Air whether in view of complaints being received in this country, he will cause an inquiry to be made into terms of service, serving conditions and arrears of leave for officers and other ranks in the Royal Air Force stationed in the Canal Zone; and whether he will undertake a corresponding inquiry into conditions of civilians employed by his Department there.

Mr. Ward

I am fully aware that conditions in the Canal Zone are not ideal at the present time. We are, however, doing what we can both for members of the Royal Air Force and civilian employees, and I should, of course, be happy to look into any points which my hon. Friend may have particularly in mind.
