asked the Under-secretary of State for Air if he will inquire into the case, details of which have been submitted to him, of a flight-lieutenant, R.A.F.V.R., D.S.O., D.F.C., a wireless operator, who sustained severe injuries in a motor-cycle accident while on duty and who received, 10 months after his accident, instructions to be invalided when he still required an urgent operation to restore function and at a stage which would cause undesirable interruption of treatment, and take steps to assist this man.

The decision to invalid this officer, which was made in error, has now been cancelled.
