§ Mr. Granville
asked the Secretary of State for Air what allowance of petrol he has agreed with the Ministry of Petroleum for flying personnel on operational command for normal journeys from Royal Air Force stations to the nearest towns where such towns are a considerable distance from aerodromes situated in a remote part of the country; and whether he is satisfied that this allowance is sufficient for reasonable rest and relaxation from operational and flying duties?
§ Sir A. Sinclair
Operational air crews do not receive an addition to the basic petrol ration for normal journeys between their station and the nearest town. Cheap transport facilities for recreational purposes are, however, provided where necessary and these facilities, in conjunction with the special petrol allowances granted to operational air crews for the purposes of leave, afford reasonable rest and relaxation from operational and flying duties.
