asked the Secretary of State or Air if he will cancel all claims for over-pay incurred by men who have been given acting rank and have continued to be paid accordingly after their acting rank has become supernumerary to establishment but without their being notified, as the fault is not theirs and the repayment of the over-pay involves hardship on the men concerned and their dependants.

I am grateful to the hon. Member for bringing to my notice a case where this point has arisen. I agree that in the case in question the airmen should not be required to refund the over-payments, and their accounts will be adjusted accordingly.
