HC Deb 04 February 1941 vol 368 cc816-7W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the fact that many men in the Royal Air Force are frequently moved from station to station, and the consequent difficulty in many cases of commanding officers getting to know these men with a view to putting them forward for commissions, he will make it a general rule for all stations that men be permitted to make direct application to their commanding officers to be considered for commission?

Sir A. Sinclair

It is open to an airman who thinks that his claims to considera- tion for a commission have been over-looked to represent his case to his superior officer, but I will look into the procedure having regard to the difficulty referred to by the hon. Member.
