asked the Secretary of State for Air whether R.A.F. clerks serving overseas will be released in their demobilisation groups, or whether it is intended to retain them for longer periods.

I would refer my hon. and learned Friend to the replies given to the hon. Members for London University (Sir E. Graham-Little) and to my hon. Friend the Member for Reigate (Mr. Touche) on 31st May and 6th June respectively.

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the shortage of doctors, he will arrange for the immediate release of a medical student whose name has been submitted to him, and who enlisted as a volunteer in October, 1941, although he had been admitted to a London teaching hospital, and is now anxious to resume his medical training.

This case cannot be dealt with, in advance of a general decision on the release of students from the Services. The subject is at present under consideration.
