HC Deb 05 November 1945 vol 415 c1052W
Major Beamish

asked the Secretary of State for War why members of the 18th Division have only been allowed to claim compensation for tropical clothing, in view of the fact that every member of the division lost not only tropical clothing but also home service scale of clothing when Malaya fell to the Japanese.

Mr. Lawson

The restriction mentioned would be contrary to the regulations, particulars of which are available at the reception camps. If the hon. and gallant Member will send me details of the case he has in mind I will make inquiries.
