§ Mr. Granville
asked the Secretary of State for Air why it was that Sergeant Kennard's application for a commission was refused after he had been recommended for a commission and had passed satisfactorily various tests at the officers' school at Cosford; and if he proposes to grant Sergeant Kennard's application for his discharge after 26 years' service with the R.A.F.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
This non-commissioned officer was adjudged to fall short of the requisite standards in certain respects and he was accordingly not commissioned. So far as I am aware no application for discharge has been received.
