asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air on what grounds a reduction has been made in the Colonial allowance for officers and men serving in the Sudan; and whether the cost of living in the Sudan and comparative figures for Egypt, Iraq, Aden, etc., were taken into consideration before this decision was reached?
