§ Squadron-Leader Segal
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air when a decision will be arrived at by his Department with reference to a plea for the re- 1487W duction of a sentence inflicted on an R.A.F. Flight-Sergeant submitted to him on 30th October last.
§ Mr. Ungoed-Thomas
asked the Undersecretary of State for Air when a decision will be given in answer to the application made to his Department on 24th September, for the return of L.A.C. K. G. Williams to this country on urgent compassionate grounds; and when effect will be given to the decision reached.
§ Mr. Strachey
I regret the delay in dealing with the original application for a compassionate posting for this airman. His subsequent application for Class C release on business grounds was approved on 8th December. I have signalled the Command in urgent terms for information as to when this airman will be repatriated. I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
