asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware of discontent arising from reduction in rank and pay through ill-health; whether he will consider a modification of this so as to avoid hardship being added to the misfortune of ill-health, especially when caused or aggravated by flying duties; and whether he will decide that reductions shall only be applied when the ill-health has supervened within a short time of the commencement of flying duties?

I am considering whether any modification is desirable in the arrangements for dealing with cases of this kind and I will bear the hon. Member's suggestions in mind.
