HC Deb 11 March 1919 vol 113 c1073
22. Mr. CLOUGH

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the Army boots which were issued to Volunteer battalions for mobilisation purposes only and which were returned to store, bearing each man's name and number after having been worn for a fortnight, can now be offered at a reasonable price to the Volunteers whom the boots fit, as by so doing the Government would save carriage and labour and be sure to get a better price for the boots in this way than by selling them in bulk to a dealer?

Captain GUEST

My hon. Friend's suggestion is now under consideration.
