HC Deb 06 December 1944 vol 406 c539W
Mr. Neal

asked the Secretary of State for Air how many officers, at a station of which he has been informed, tendered their resignations during the month of September last; how many of these officers were over 50 years of age; and what were the reasons of their redundancy.

Sir A. Sinclair

Six officers submitted applications to resign their commissions as they understood that they might be required to relinquish them on grounds of redundancy. All were over 50. The position of these and other officers affected by the contraction of establishments has been considered by a special board at the Air Ministry and decisions will be conveyed to them at an early date. Redundancy is due to the altered requirements of the Service in the present phase of the war.
