HC Deb 31 October 1945 vol 415 cc566-7W
Mr. Shurmer

asked the Under-secretary of State for Air if he is aware that airmen adopted as municipal candidates and given leave to take part in the election are having such time deducted from their normal leave; and if he will undertake to give instructions for this practice to cease.

Mr. Strachey

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Everton (Mr. Kirby) on 9th October, of which I am sending him a copy.
