HC Deb 25 October 1939 vol 352 cc1435-6W
Sir I. Albery

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is intended to issue to all Territorial units the same outfit of underclothing as is being supplied to the Regular Army and militiamen; and whether he is aware that some Territorial units still only have the same underclothing as they were wearing in camp in July?

Sir V. Warrender

The same scales of underclothing are now applicable to soldiers of all branches of the Army. Territorials who supplied their own necessaries, which include underclothing, on embodiment received a payment of 10s. They are entitled to free replacement of underclothing as required. Underclothing is available for issue, and no complaints have been received in this connection.
