HC Deb 28 May 1941 vol 371 c1875W
Mr. Perkins

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that many Royal Air Force instructors volunteered for flying duties in Rhodesia on the definite promise from the Air Ministry that their wives could join them within a reasonable time; and whether he will take steps to fulfil this pledge?

Sir A. Sinclair

No such promise has been given by the Air Ministry, since the availability of passages obviously depends upon the shipping situation.
