asked the Secretary of State for Air why the airman, of whom he has been informed, was removed from draft: whether these reasons were in existence when the airman began his flying training eight months before removal from draft; and whether the airman's training record was satisfactory?

This airman was removed from draft because of complaints made by his comrades which, in the interests of the airman himself, called for the fullest investigation. Inquiries are being made and some of the men concerned are overseas. The answer to the second part of the Question is in the negative. As regards the third part, so far as I am aware no adverse reports were made on his proficiency during training.
