HC Deb 26 February 1958 vol 583 c39W
39. Mr. Pargiter

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will direct the Corporation of the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes not to permit the extension of honorary membership of any club under its control to alien civilian officials working in the vicinity unless such membership is also extended to British civilian officials.

Mr. Soames

The Corporation of N.A.A.F.I. does not control the honorary membership of the clubs overseas which it operates on behalf of the Services. Subject to certain rules, this is a matter for the club committee representing members of the forces in the area concerned. If the hon. Gentleman will send me details of the case he has in mind, I will make inquiries to see if it arises from the regulations or from a decision of the club committee.
