Almost anything knowable about the MGA can be found in the MGA Guru's 
Tech Pages:

Re: MGA Air Filters - yes, they should be oiled. The MGA Owner's Manual 
is available here: The front 
filter plate has a short pipe for the rocker breather. The MGA filter 
easily bends around it.

Having noted the above, It should be mentioned that the MGA Air Filters 
are more for keeping rocks & small birds out. Alternate filters are 
shown here: To fit these 
filters you will need to carve away a bit of the filter to clear the 
breather fitting.

Not stock in appearance but I use K&N RU4410 attached to MGB SU air 
entry smoothers. Much easier to R/R the filters and real filtration.
