HC Deb 21 July 1954 vol 530 c127W
88. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of the number of courts-martial at EI Firdan in June in which several airmen were convicted for serious offences and sentenced to long terms of detention; what complaints have been made about the conditions at this camp; and whether he will order an inquiry into the reasons why so many offences have occurred.

Mr. Ward

I have called for a report, and I shall write to the right hon. Member as soon as I can.
