§ Mr. G. Hutchinson
asked the Secretory of State for Air why airmen, over 35 years of age, who are in early demobilisation groups are now being posted overseas.
§ Sir A. Sinclair
Men in early release groups are not normally posted overseas except to Western Europe. In certain trades where there is an acute deficiency strict adherence to this policy is impracticable, but every endeavour is made to avoid taking men from the earliest release groups.
