HC Deb 21 March 1944 vol 398 c650
17. Miss Ward

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in the future, soldiers will be allowed to wear a collar and tie in order to place them on terms of equality with the airmen.

Sir J. Grigg

Whatever the merits of a change of this kind may be, I do not think that this is a suitable time to consider it.

Miss Ward

Is my right hon. Friend aware that this is a very real grievance?

Sir J. Grigg

I am aware of a lot of other considerations in connection with the immediate future.
