HC Deb 24 October 1944 vol 404 c7
17. Sir Ralph Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the civilian clothing allowance issued to A.T.S. on discharge is to be increased to correspond with the improved scale of civilian clothing issuable to soldiers discharged since 16th October.

Sir J. Grigg

Yes, Sir. Since 16th October, auxiliaries discharged from the Service have been receiving £12 10s. 0d. to buy civilian clothes. No attempt is being made to introduce an issue in kind, and I hope hon. Members will agree with me that this is wise.

Sir R. Glyn

Will my right hon. Friend take special steps so that this may be made known throughout the Commands, as the position is causing considerable anxiety?

Sir J. Grigg

I suspect that the Commands ought to know. They have certainly had the clearest indication of it, but I will undertake to inquire into the matter to see whether anything more is needed. I have not noticed that they are in the habit of not reading Regulations.
