HC Deb 14 February 1929 vol 225 cc531-2
29. Mr. JOHN

asked the President of the Board of Education whether he is aware that, under the auspices of the Lord Mayor's fund, soldiers' uniforms and overcoats are being sent into the distressed areas of South Wales to clothe the miners; whether such clothing has been bought from the War Office; who authorised the buying; what was the price paid; and will he take the necessary steps to discontinue buying soldiers' clothes for civilian miners?


I am informed that none of the clothing referred to has been bought. It forms part of a gift of clothing, including boots and underclothing, from the Army and Air Councils.

Forward to
