HC Deb 30 November 1948 vol 458 c170W
Colonel Stoddart-Scott

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is considering any system of compensation for those senior examiners who are ex-Service men of the 1914–18 war, who were reverted to a lower rank before their juniors during the period of redundancy in his Department in 1945 and who have since left the Service.

Mr. A. Henderson

No. Reversions of senior examiners to meet the redundancy in the Aeronautical Inspection Department in 1945 were carried out in accordance with a procedure agreed by the Ministry of Supply with the Staff Side of their Departmental Whitley Council. This procedure resulted in a number of Senior Examiners, including some transferred with their work to the Air Ministry, being reverted to a lower rank before their juniors, but I am advised that this possibility was foreseen by the Staff Side when the Whitley agreement was made.
