asked the Secretary of State for Air on what grounds over 30 members of the Royal Air Force security police have been discharged in Northern Ireland seeing that many of these men gave up good pensionable positions in the police force in order to serve, took the required oath and were appointed for the duration of the war; and whether in justice to these men he will go carefully into this whole matter with a view to their restoration?

I am making inquiries and will communicate with my hon. Friend.

These men have been turned down with no allowance, and is it not too bad that they should suffer through an oversight on the part of the Air Ministry?
