HC Deb 12 July 1961 vol 644 c43W
46. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Secretary of State for Air what action was taken to acclimatise airmen to excessive heat before sending them to Kuwait.

Mr. Amery

Most of the airmen went to Kuwait from other tropical stations and would have already been acclimatised. Airmen posted to tropical stations are told how to avoid heat exhaustion.
