asked the Secretary of State for Air, whether he will make inquiries as to certain young men, who joined the Royal Air Force as radio location operators and such like, now stationed in Iraq, and doing the work of navvies in a temperature of 170 degrees; and, as these men can stand the strain no longer, whether he will give orders at once for their release from all such work?
