HC Deb 08 September 1942 vol 383 c65W
Mr. J. Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will set up an organisation for the Royal Air Force of a similar kind to the Army Bureau of Current Affairs?

Sir A. Sinclair

A scheme of regular weekly lectures on' current affairs was introduced into the Royal Air Force in October, 1941. In addition the pamphlets prepared by the Army Bureau of Current Affairs are distributed to all Royal Air Force stations, where in many cases they form the basis of discussion by regular discussion groups. It is proposed in the coming winter to extend the existing arrangements by organising regular discussion groups at all Royal Air Force stations. Since the Army Bureau of Current Affairs is able to cater in this way for the needs of the Royal Air Force it is unnecessary to establish a separate organisation.
