HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 cc1660-1W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Undersecretary of State for Air if he will inquire into the case, details of which have been submitted to him, of a graduate of London University, a schoolmaster who wishes to return to teaching under Class B scheme but who, although belonging to Group 26, finds that teachers in Group 28 have been released while he is retained; and if he will ensure that this man is now released.

Mr. Strachey

This airman is now to be offered release in Class B. I regret that the offer was not made earlier.

Mr. J. McKay

asked the Secretary of State for War why 1090977 L.A.C. Hunter, J., 57 Unit, R.A.F., S.E.A.A.F., India, after being overseas for three years nine months, is not getting his home leave and others in the same unit, who went out two months later, are on their way home.

Mr. Strachey

L.A.C. Hunter is due for return to the United Kingdom, as we have now started to reduce the overseas tour for single men to 3½years. We cannot bring home at once all the extra men who have just become eligible for return, but we are making enquiries about the arrangements for this airman. I will write to the hon. Member as soon as possible.
