HC Deb 17 January 1945 vol 407 cc173-4W
Mr. Loverseed

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the fact that many airmen, medically fit for aircrew training, are not now likely to be required as such, he will amend the relevant Air Ministry orders to permit of those engaged in duties which could be performed by men of a lower medical category remustering to trades more compatible with their medical fitness and desires.

Sir A. Sinclair

The regulations in this matter have already been adjusted to meet current war requirements and, in general, airmen in ground trades who have been selected and assessed as medically fit for air-crew duties can now be remustered to any trade in which there is a requirement and for which they are recommended. Airmen in certain trades in which there is an acute shortage are excepted from this arrangement.
