§ Major Milner
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether there is any no-treating rule in Royal Air Force messes?
§ Sir A. Sinclair
Treating between members of the same mess is forbidden by King's Regulations. A member of one mess may however treat a member of another mess when visiting the mess as a guest and off duty. A member of a mess may also treat a civilian who is his guest if the latter is not an honorary member of the mess. The treating of mess employees is forbidden.
