HC Deb 30 July 1954 vol 531 c115W
Mrs. Braddock

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he has investigated the complaints of Royal Air Force personnel at Sharjah, Persian Gulf, M.E.A.F. 24, with reference to the carrying out of full-scale training in a temperature of 110° Fahrenheit in the shade, continual corned beef for lunch over a period of three months, unsatisfactory billets and cookhouses, and beds held up by petrol tins, of which details in a letter have been forwarded to him; and whether he will make a statement on his investigation.

Mr. Ward

I have called for a report from the Middle East and I shall write to the hon. Member as soon as this is received.
