§ 20. Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can now give an answer with regard to the stoppage of flying pay due to an officer who recently had an accident at the Royal Flying School, about which he is inquiring into?
Flying pay automatically stops after a certain period of leave and sick leave. The question of a gratuity or pension would depend upon the report of a medical board as to the degree of the officer's injury. In the case in question this point has not yet been determined, but the officer will receive every consideration compatible with the regulations, and will not suffer by any deferring of the decision as to whether he should be entitled to gratuity.
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the flying pay of this officer was stopped from the very day that the accident took place, 3rd February, and continued stopped during February and March?
