HC Deb 21 June 1938 vol 337 c883
53. Mr. Beaumont

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that whereas the colours of a Regular unit are provided and repaired through ordnance those of a Territorial unit cannot be provided or maintained, either directly or indirectly, from Army funds or the public funds of county associations; and whether he will consider amending the regulations so as to enable the colours of Territorial units to be provided from the same source as those of Regular units?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

The facts as stated are correct and I will with pleasure reconsider the matter.
