HC Deb 02 November 1939 vol 352 cc2149-50W
Mr. T. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he has yet considered making allowances to officers and men who are serving in the Air Cadets; and can he now make a statement on the subject?

Sir K. Wood

I presume the hon. Member refers to the members of the Air Defence Cadet Corps, a voluntary organisation controlled by the Air League of the British Empire. I am unable to hold out any hope of an increase in the financial assistance at present given to this body by the Air Ministry.
