HC Deb 01 March 1946 vol 419 c435W
Mr. Mitchison

asked the Undersecretary of State for Air whether he is aware that men returning to this country. for release, have been detained in 35 Personnel Transit Camp at Calcutta for long periods, amounting in at least one case to 40 days; and what steps are being taken to accelerate the dispatch of such men on their homeward journey.

Mr. Strachey

I regret that the detailed report which has been called for from the Command is not yet available, but I will write to my hon. Friend as soon as possible. Meanwhile, as I said in my reply of 27th February to my hon. and gallant Friend, the Member for Uxbridge (Flight-Lieutenant Beswick), there is a good prospect of preventing any hold-up of transport home for airmen in March.
