asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many trains per day run between Toulon and Dieppe carrying Air Force leave personnel; and if these trains are adequate to carry all the personnel.

The small number of airmen at present travelling from Toulon to Dieppe, for leave are adequately provided for by the one daily Service train. As stated in my reply of 10th October to the hon. and gallant Member for Brighton (Flight-Lieutenant Teeling), my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War is taking steps to improve conditions of travel for Service personnel across France. When traffic on this route is increased, a second daily train will run from Toulon to Dieppe.
