HC Deb 21 May 1946 vol 423 cc176-7
29. Mr. J. L. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the amended scales of baggage entitlement, introduced last November, in respect of Army personnel proceeding from Kenya Colony to the United Kingdom, enabling officers to take more luggage and other ranks less than before, are still in operation; and if he will take early steps to remove this source of grievance.

Mr. Lawson

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. Member for Louth (Mr. Osborne) on 19th February. The whole question of baggage entitlement for officers and other ranks is being reviewed by an inter-Service Committee in the light of postwar requirements.
