HC Deb 18 December 1946 vol 431 c389W
91. Mr. Digby

asked the Secretary of State for Air how many wives of airmen are still waiting to join their husbands in East and Central Africa; and what steps he is taking to make additional suitable accommodation available there for airmen's families.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

Ninety-nine airmen's families are waiting to go out to Southern Rhodesia and 36 to East Africa. About 30 families should be going out in the next six weeks. We hope to build married quarters next year. In Southern Rhodesia we are also looking for suitable accommodation which can be leased.
