§ 2. Mrs. Castle
asked the Secretary of State for Air why the ration money for the Royal Air Force in Aden has been reduced from 11s. 10d. per day to 10s. 8d.
The reduction has now been cancelled. The rates are normally reviewed at intervals of six months and we are at present considering with the other Departments concerned what rates should apply from 1st July onwards.
§ Mrs. Castle
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I received a letter from a constituent in Aden saying that this decrease came in on 1st April? Can the right hon. Gentleman say, therefore, whether if this ration allowance was wrongfully reduced, thus placing a financial burden on families living out, some adjustment will now be made for that period?
