§ 59. Mr. BILLING
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the fact that it is the intention to introduce a new uniform for the Air Services as and when the existing naval and military uniforms were worn out; and, under these circumstances, will he say whether it is intended that during the interregnum there will simultaneously be three official uniforms for the Air Service?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the AIR BOARD (Major Baird)
The position will be as indicated in the second part of the hon. Member's question. Any other system would be extravagant, and would involve difficulties of supply which will be avoided by a gradual change over from the existing to the new uniforms.
§ Mr. BILLING
Are we to understand that a grant will be made to officers to enable them to get this uniform or will they have to buy it out of their own pocket?
