HC Deb 29 July 1960 vol 627 c218W
Dr. A. Thompson

asked the Secretary of State for Air what are his regulations regarding delivery of leaflets by various organisations, such as political parties, religious groups, charities, and commercial firms to Royal Air Force married quarters; and whether commanding officers have authority to discriminate among the organisations so permitted.

Mr. W. J. Taylor

Entry to security-classified R.A.F. stations is controlled by the issue of passes; at other stations, commanding officers have powers to permit or refuse entry. Entry for deliveries by local tradesmen is normally allowed and entry for the purpose of political or commercial canvassing is normally prohibited. Canvassing is allowed at married quarters which are approached direct from the public highway, and may also be allowed, at the discretion of the commanding officer, at married quarters outside the station which are approached from Air Ministry roads.
