HC Deb 15 April 1947 vol 436 c8
17. Mr. Granville Sharp

asked the Secretary of State for War to make a statement on the issue of sheets and pyjamas to soldiers.

Mr. Bellenger

Enough sheets have been sent to tropical stations to enable all British troops there to be provided with them. Sheets are being made in Germany for Rhine Army. It is the intention to provide sheets for all troops at Home, but, unfortunately, the supply situation will make this impossible for some considerable time. Pyjamas will be provided for all British troops as soon as enough can be produced. In the meantime the fairest method of distributing the very limited quantity at present available is being considered.
