§ MR. ALDEN (Middlesex, Tottenham)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will state the price of the new service jacket supplied by the Pimlico stores to the Territorial Force, the inclusive cost of material, and the cost for civilian labour.
§ MR. HALDANE
The garment in question is not supplied to the Territorial Force in a made up condition, but only cut out, without buttons and titles. The inclusive cost of the material supplied, plus carriage, is on the average (including 3d. for cost of cutting out) 6s., and this is the rate charged. The cost of the labour of making up the garments is met under local arrangements by the various County Associations.
