HC Deb 27 March 1945 vol 409 c1332W
Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that wounded and sick soldiers in London hospitals are unable to obtain a change of underclothing; and will he arrange for supplies of shirts, pants and socks to be sent to hospitals far issue to soldiers when required.

Sir J. Griģģ

I understand that there is no shortage of underclothing far wear in hospital. My hon. Friend is probably referring to the underclothes which men take with them when they go on leave from hospital. Steps are being taken to ensure that in future soldiers leave hospital with a clean change of underclothing.
