§ Mr. G. Hutchinson
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether it is intended that R.A.F. personnel who have returned to 484W this country after a period of service overseas will, if again sent overseas, be sent to a European theatre of war, as is the case with Army personnel, and not to one outside Europe.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
I cannot give any general undertaking, but, subject to the exigencies of service, R.A.F. officers and airmen who have completed a full tour of duty in the Middle East or Far East are not normally posted for a second tour in those theatres unless they are volunteers.
