asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if he is aware that nursing and dental staffs at Honing-ton Royal Air Force Camp are being armed to attend certain parades, and if his Department's permission has been obtained in accordance with A.M.O. 6/51; and if he will also inquire into the use on this station of Royal Air Force personnel for private car cleaning.
I understand that nursing and dental orderlies at Royal Air Force Station Honington have been carrying rifles on ceremonial drill parades, with which Air Ministry Order A.6/51 is not concerned.
Inquiries into the use of Royal Air Force personnel for cleaning private cars on that Station have not revealed any abuse of Q.R. and A.C.I. paragraph 1964 (7), which permits Royal Air Force personnel to clean and service private cars standing in authorised parking places, provided the work is done outside normal working hours and is authorised by the commanding officer.
