The rates of grant pay able to units of the Air Training Corps are at present under review but the information so far available does not suggest that any increase would be justified. As regards the second part of the Question, I regret that general shortage of material precludes the issue of greatcoats. The possibility of issuing some other form of protective clothing is being investigated. As for the last part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the Reply given to the hon. Member for Melton (Sir W. Everard) on 8th January.
I am deply interested in the success of this Corps and its welfare, and the point which the hon. Gentleman has brought to my notice is very much in my mind.
