§ 4. Mr. M. Stewart
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he will investigate the efficacy of the protective clothing issued to airmen engaged on dirty work.
The one-piece denim overalls now in general use were introduced in 1950 after extensive trials. I have no evidence that they are not effective.
The new type of overalls was approved by the Air Ministry Working and Protective Clothing Committee, after consultation with commands and after trying them out at Air Force stations.
§ Mr. Emrys Hughes
Can the Minister give a definition of what exactly is meant by "dirty work" in the Royal Air Force?
