HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 c400W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the group system under Class A, embodied in the White Paper on the Re-allocation of Man Power, is applicable to all personnel of the R.A.F.V.R., notwithstanding any liability to complete a four-year tour of foreign service which may be implicit in the terms of enlistment of such personnel, or will such personnel who have not proceeded overseas throughout the war in Europe be required to serve a complete term of four years overseas before they can be released.

Mr. H. Macmillan

The group system applies to all Class A releases from the Air Force. For purposes of priority of release there is no distinction between service at home and overseas, nor is there any liability to complete an overseas tour.
