HC Deb 18 August 1919 vol 119 cc1954-5W

asked the Under-secretary of State to the Air Ministry whether it has now been decided to give free railway warrants to members of the Women's Royal Air Force when proceeding home on leave?

Major-General SEELY

Officers and other ranks of the Women's Royal Air Force serving in the United Kingdom are not given free warrants when proceeding on leave; but officers and other ranks serving overseas receive two free warrants a year. In July last, as a special concession, those officers and other ranks who had been unable, owing to the exigencies of service, to take leave at Christmas, 1918, were granted a free warrant in respect of leave taken prior to the 31st August.
