asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, since it is officially announced that recruiting for the Women's Auxiliary Air Force service is closed owing to the full complement being attained, he can state the object of the recruiting drives for this corps which are still being held; and whether he will see to it that the time and energy expended are better employed?
Instructions have already been issued that recruiting publicity for the W.A.A.F. is to cease.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that women who are now volunteering for this Service are being told that it is full and that they may be told of a vacancy within a year?
Yes, Sir. We have a limited number of vacancies only for a few specialist members. Otherwise our establishment is full.
