HC Deb 07 August 1941 vol 373 c2119W
Major Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, with a view to the conservation of leather supply, as well as for the better comfort of those concerned, he will consider the issue of shoes instead of boots for personnel employed on sedentary or other work for which this footwear would be appropriate, and would normally be utilised in comparable civilian employment?

Mr. Sandys

I am looking into this question and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as possible.
