HC Deb 25 April 1944 vol 399 cc648-9W
Sir I. Albery

asked the Secretary of State for Air why, in the Visiting Forces (Royal Canadian Air Force) (Amendment) Order, 1944 (S.R. & O., No. 332, of 1944), the words "Sixteen Dollars, Canadian" are substituted by the words "Twenty-five Dollars, Canadian," and if he will state the meaning of the Order.

Sir A. Sinclair

Under recent amendment to Royal Canadian Air Force regulations the maximum fine which a court-martial may award for drunkenness was increased from 16 to 25 dollars. The Canadian authorities desire that airmen of the Royal Canadian Air Force attached to the R.A.F. shall be in the same position in this respect as those serving under Royal Canadian Air Force regulations. The Order referred to has this effect.
