HC Deb 08 July 1908 vol 191 c1649
MR. HERBERT (Buckinghamshire, Wycombe)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether boots are provided as part of the kit of the Territorial Army; and, if not, whether, seeing that good boots are a most important part of a soldier's equipment, he will consider the advisability of including boots in the kit provided.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) This point was carefully considered when the grants for clothing and equipments were fixed, and it was held that the provision set forth in Paragraph 612 of the Regulations for the Territorial Force was sufficient to compensate men for the extra wear due to military service.
