asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that in Gibraltar Servicemen of the R.A.F. in classification Groups 1 to 5 are being demobilised with the exception of cooks and one or two other trades; and how long will it be before cooks in this high category will be demobilised.

As stated in my predecessor's reply to the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Mr. Lipson) on 25th April, the rate of release from the Royal Air Force will vary between the different branches, categories and trades. The restriction on the release of cooks applies throughout the Royal Air Force. Cooks in Group 1 will be released in the month commencing 18th June, and it is hoped that the date for release of cooks in Groups 2 to 5 will be promulgated shortly.
