§ Sir B. FALLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if it is the policy of the Department to allow non-commissioned officers of the Royal Air Force to re-engage for pension; and, if not, if he will give the reason?
§ Mr. R. BEAUMONT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air under what conditions men of the Royal Air Force are permitted to re-engage on completion of their original term of service; and what rank they must have attained before such permission is granted J 556W and whether he will, for the convenience of the unemployed in the borough and especially in view of the provisions of the Unemployment Bill under which increased numbers will be required for various purposes to attend at the Employment Exchange, take steps to establish an Employment Exchange within the boundaries of the borough?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
The borough of Bethnal Green is served by three Employment Exchanges, situated in Kingsland Road, Shoreditch, Mansell Street, Stepney, and Mare Street, Hackney, respectively, all of which are within a mile of the centre of the borough, and provide adequate facilities for dealing with any increase in numbers which may reasonably be expected to arise from the operation of Part II of the Unemployment Bill. In these circumstances, I am unable to adopt the hon. and gallant Member's suggestion.
