HC Deb 18 December 1945 vol 417 cc1283-4W
Mr. Awbery

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he is aware that men of the low release groups are being sent abroad, only to discover, a few weeks after they have landed, that they become due for release; and as this is a waste of shipping space and manpower, what action he proposes to adopt to stop this practice.

Mr. strachey

We do not normally post to distant commands members of the Air Force who are due for early release. The release groups excluded from overseas. posting are constantly under review and are advanced as the Release Scheme progresses.
