asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that regular airmen posted to the United Kingdom before demobilisation are now unable to qualify for disturbance allowance; and whether he will amend the present regulations.

Disturbance allowance is intended to meet incidental expenses incurred by an officer or airman in settling his family at a new station, and consequently it is not paid, in any of the three Services, unless he is expected to stay at the new station for at least six months. My right hon. and learned Friend regrets that he is unable to amend the regulations.
