§ Wing-Commander Hulbert
asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will consider introducing a scheme whereby R.A.F. personnel not fully employed may be released from the Services for return to civil employment in cases where this is available subject to 14 days' notice to return to the Services when required.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
Arrangements already exist whereby R.A.F. personnel who are required in the national interest to undertake essential civilian employment can either be released outright or for a period, provided the requirement is endorsed by the appropriate Government Department. I regret it would not be practicable to extend these arrangements on the lines envisaged by my hon. and gallant Friend.
