§ 9. Mr. Osborne
asked the Undersecretary of State for Air when he will give a decision respecting 1812755 A.C.2 Sutcliffe, in answer to a letter dated 3rd December, 1945, to his Department.
§ Mr. Strachey
On 21st December I replied to the hon. Member asking him to confirm that this airman had submitted an application for compassionate release. On 18th February the hon. Member informed me that this airman had not done so hitherto but had applied in January.In a further letter of 1st March the hon. Member suggested that the airman was being victimised. The hon. Member will now have received my letter of 5th March explaining why compassionate release could not be granted and that there is no question at all of victimisation.
