§ 24. Mr. Hannah
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the anomaly by which soldiers need to use their wives' or any other coupons, in order to buy handkerchiefs or underwear; and whether he will arrange that soldiers have coupons of their own?
§ Sir J. Grigg
Soldiers are under no such necessity. They can buy handkerchiefs from retailers on production of certificates from their commanding officers authorising them to do so. Underwear is issued to them, and replaced free as necessary.
