HC Deb 05 May 1943 vol 389 cc180-1W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he has further considered the necessity of instituting a welfare department, with appropriate officers, to advise and assist both ground staff and flying personnel respecting personal problems?

Sir A. Sinclair

I am sending the hon. Member copies of recent Air Ministry Orders describing the functions of the Directorate of Air Force Welfare in the Air Ministry, welfare arrangements generally in the Service and the facilities open to airmen and airwomen for obtaining legal advice on their personal affairs. The hon. Member will, I think, agree that the need to which he has drawn attention has been fully met.
