HC Deb 18 June 1941 vol 372 cc663-4W
Mr. Perkins

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the fact that no promise has been given by the Air Ministry to men who have volunteered for instructional duties in Rhodesia and South Africa to the effect that wives would be able to join them at an early date, he will take immediate steps to inform all officers in training command of this fact, in order to prevent any further misunderstanding on this subject?

Sir A. Sinclair

R.A.F. personnel proceeding to Southern Rhodesia and the Union of South Africa have been duly warned that the delay in obtaining passages for their families will be long and may be indefinite.
