HC Deb 14 July 1919 vol 118 c60W

asked the Undersecretary of State to the Air Ministry-why it is found impracticable to give men at Warsash, Royal Air Force, the half-day on Wednesday in accordance with Air Ministry weekly orders; whether men can only leave the camp every other day, as they are on fire picket alternate days; and who is the camp commandant responsible?

Major-General SEELY

The men at Warsash are granted leave from camp on an average of three days out of four, including night leave. There is no Ail-Ministry weekly order to the effect suggested in the question, but under the arrangements in force at Warsash the men get two free Wednesday afternoons out of three.
