HC Deb 26 May 1960 vol 624 c77W
Mr. Marten

asked the Secretary of State for Air why William Patrick Joseph King, of Banbury, was discharged from the Royal Air Force on 6th May; how long he remained in the Royal Air Force; and what was the cost to the taxpayer of his call-up, service and discharge.

Mr. W. J. Taylor

Aircraftman King was discharged the day after his enlistment, as the medical authorities at the R.A.F. Reception Unit judged him unlikely to be suitable for air force service. The cost to Air Votes of his call-up, service and discharge was £2 14s.
