§ 49. Mr. Lewis
asked the Undersecretary of State for Air what steps he takes to ensure that coloured Royal Air Force personnel are not officially sent to hotels that operate the colour bar when needing accommodation; and what action he takes to ensure that no Royal Air Force personnel are officially sent to, or accommodated in, hotels that operate the colour bar.
None, Sir. Members of the Royal Air Force are not officially sent to stay at particular hotels. I can, however, assure the hon. Member that there is no colour bar in any club, canteen, or hostel run by an organisation officially recognised by the Air Ministry.
