HC Deb 13 May 1918 vol 106 c47W

asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether men employed in agricultural companies who are sent out to work with motor tractors can be supplied with a suit of canvas or some cheap form of overall in order that the present wasteful practice of spoiling ordinary khaki suits at this work may be stopped?


Men in agricultural companies are supplied with special working suits to save undue wear and tear of their service dress clothing. In view of this, I do not think it necessary to adopt my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion.
