§ Sir W. de FRECE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether, before taking a decision on representations now being made in favour of the employment of home musicians and the discouragement of military bands, he will take into consideration the fact that all the chief seaside resorts in the country encourage the latter and that it would be a setback to their prosperity if any restrictions were placed upon military bands accepting civilian engagements beyond those already in existence?
§ Mr. SHINWELL
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to-day to my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol North (Mr. Ayles).
