HC Deb 20 March 1941 vol 370 c305W
Colonel Mitchell

asked the Home Secretary when uniforms of a more substantial type will be issued to first-aid and rescue parties?

Mr. H. Morrison

Arrangements have been completed for providing new uniforms of battle-dress design for first-aid parties and rescue parties. The uniforms are of durable material suited to the special working conditions of these parties. Local authorities are now placing their orders, and it is expected that the first supplies of the new uniforms will begin to be available at the end of the present month.
