asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that a corporal in the Royal Air Force, of whom he has been informed, recently completed some eight months' flying training; was placed on draft to proceed to complete his training; was taken off at the last moment without reason given; that he is not to be put on draft until further instructions; whether he has given satisfaction; whether complaints have been made against him; for what reason, not in existence when he began his training last June, he has been thus treated; and whether the right hon. Gentleman will take steps to avoid injury to morale and waste of training by ending such treatment?

The airman in question was removed from draft for reasons which are good and sufficient. The other points raised by the hon. and learned Member are under consideration.
