HC Deb 20 January 1943 vol 386 cc227-8W
Wing-Commander Hulbert

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether any arrangements have been made for bringing he Beveridge Report to the notice of all ranks of the Royal Air Force?

Sir A. Sinclair

Copies of the abridged version of the Report have been sent to a number of station education officers to enable them to answer questions if the subject were raised at meetings of voluntary discussion groups. With the same object in view, a lecture on the Report was given to R.A.F. education officers and W.A.A.F. officers from all Home Commands' who were attending a recent three-day course.

Mr. Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether or not any ban has been placed on the discussion of the Beveridge Report by airmen prior to its being debated in Parliament?

Sir A. Sinclair

No, Sir; but, unlike A.B.C.A. discussions in the Army, attendance at discussion groups in the R.A.F. is voluntary.
