§ Mrs. Tate
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that hardship is caused to many wives and families of officers of the Royal Air Force through the irregular remittances of their allowances; and whether he will take steps to arrange for these allowances to be sent direct to the wives of officers as in the case of other ranks?
§ Sir A. Sinclair
Pay and allowances are issued regularly to officers of the Royal Air Force and it is their responsibility to provide for their families. The evidence available does not suggest that it is necessary to change the procedure in the way proposed by my hon. Friend.
