asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air (1) if he will arrange for an investigation into the misuse of aircraftmen, details of which have been supplied by the hon. Member for Erith and Crayford;
A report on certain of the matters referred to by the hon. Member in his letter is now being considered by the Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Maintenance Command. I am having inquiries made into the other allegations. I will write to the hon. Member as soon as the investigation is complete.
I apologise if the reply to my hon. and gallant Friend's letter has been unduly delayed. I will certainly look into the matter and see what the position is. I can assure him that we are constantly examining any cases that may be brought to our notice of misuse of manpower in the Royal Air Force.
