§ Major GLYN
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will take steps to enforce the prohibition of any person wearing any exact uniform in the course of a stage play performed in a place duly licensed or authorised for the public performance of stage-plays, or in the course of a music-hall or circus performance; and whether he will communicate with the licensing authorities?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I am not aware of any express prohibition to the effect referred to by my lion, and gallant Friend, apart from the general provision in the Defence of the Realm Regulations forbidding the unauthorised wearing of uniforms. The Uniforms Act, 1894, specially provides that this enactment shall not prevent any persons from wearing any uniform or dress in the course of a stage play, performed in a place duly licensed or authorised for the public performance of stage plays, or in the course of a music-hall or circus performance."
