asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he has yet received the application of Corporal Ward for compassionate leave; and whether this application has been granted?

This airman's application for compassionate leave has been carefully considered. A sufficiently strong case has not been made out and in the circumstances the application has been refused.

Has this airman been told that if he makes a further application in the future for compassionate leave it will be refused? Will there be an opportunity for him to make a further application?

If there is any change in the circumstances, but I understand that the application is on the same ground.

Has he been told that if he makes an application for compassionate leave in the future, it will be refused?

Certainly, on the same ground, but if there is a change in the ground, the fresh ground will be considered.
