Sir I. Albery

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he is aware that in September last, in Madras, 110 other ranks, together with 10 corporals and some of higher rank, were ordered to board a train with accommodation for 56 men for a three-days' journey; that only 30 boarded the train as ordered, the others being sent to a detention barracks, and the 10 corporals court-martialled and deprived of their rank; and will he make inquiries into this incident.

Sir A. Sinclair

I am making inquiries and will communicate with my hon. Friend.
