HC Deb 08 July 1959 vol 608 cc128-9W
49. Mr. Baird

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that boy entrants at Cosford Royal Air Force Camp, near Wolverhampton, are forced to do unnecessary parades, duties, fatigues, and fagging for non-commissioned officers; and if he will make inquiries into the allegations.

Mr. Neave

My inquiries indicate that neither the number of parades nor the station duties allocated to boy entrants are excessive. Fagging is forbidden and in order to prevent it senior and junior entries are now accommodated separately. I am however continuing to watch the matter.
