No, Sir. My right hon. Friend regrets that he does not feel that an increase in the existing scale of allowance would be justifiable in present circumstances.
Will my hon. and gallant Friend ask his right hon. Friend to consider the possibility of issuing an even lower mileage allowance than that suggested in the Question if the supplies of petrol are limited, on the grounds that it would be very much more useful to Air Force personnel employed on stations, which are often isolated, as against using petrol for leave purposes which is both extravagant and unnecessary?
