HC Deb 31 October 1916 vol 86 c1533
103. Mr. RENDALL

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether it is necessary for the Base and Southern General Hospital to send out fresh clothing for wounded men consisting of bright blue trousers and dark blue coats as they are now doing; and, seeing that the men dislike these parti—coloured suits, will he give these soldiers more consideration?


This clothing is in accordance with the standard pattern and is considered suitable for the purpose by the medical authorities. I regret it is not possible to consult individual tastes in regard to general supplies of clothing of this nature.
