asked the Secretary of State for Air why an Order was recently issued by his Department prohibiting W.A.A.F. officers from inviting male guests to guest nights in R.A.F. messes.

The main purpose of this Order was to make officers in the W.A.A.F. full members of the officers' messes in the R.A.F. It is a rule that, on official guest nights, officers in the R.A.F. shall not invite ladies to their mess; in accordance with this rule, it has been decided that officers in the W.A.A.F. may only invite officers of their own or of the other Women's Services.
