HC Deb 25 June 1947 vol 439 cc60-1W
92. Miss Bacon

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he is aware that the recruiting advertisement for the R.A.F. promises married quarters; and how he reconciles this with the fact that, in some cases, men who have been married for several years have been informed that, owing to a long wailing list of hardship cases, no date can be promised when married quarters will be available for them.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

I am grateful to my hon. Friend for drawing my attention to this advertisement which gives, I am afraid, a misleading impression of the numbers of married quarters which are at present available for members of the R.A.F. I have given instructions for the advertisement to be withdrawn.
