HC Deb 16 March 1948 vol 448 c218W
86. Lieut.-Colonel Kingsmill

asked the Secretary of State for War when it is intended that No. I dress will be issued to officers who have bought mess dress and/or blue patrol uniform; and whether such officers will be expected to pay for No. 1 dress.

Mr. Shinwell

No decision has been taken regarding the time or conditions of introduction of No. I Dress for the Army.

87. Major Beamish

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will publish a list of the occasions on which permission has been given for full dress uniform to be worn other than by individuals since it became obsolete in 1918; and the occasions on which such permission has been refused.

Mr. Shinwell

This information, if indeed it is available at all, could not be obtained without a great deal of research, which I do not consider would be justifiable.

89. Colonel Stoddart-Scott

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the recognised full-dress uniform for the Army, other than the Household Troops; and on what occasions such dress may be worn.

Mr. Shinwell

Except for the Household Troops, and the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery, there is now no recognised full dress uniform for the Army. No. 1 Dress, when introduced, will be used for those ceremonial occasions for which full dress was worn in the past.
