§ Mr. G. Ward
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that officers and cadets of the Army Cadet Force are not issued with greatcoats, boots or belts and receive no outfit allowance or supplementary clothing coupons; and whether, in view of the surplus stocks of such equipment now held, he will take steps to remedy the situation.
§ Mr. Lawson
The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir."As regards the second part I cannot say at present what surpluses are likely to exist. I am investigating the possibility of supplying clothing coupons to permit the purchase by Army Cadet Force officers of officer items not provided in this country from Army sources.
