HC Deb 15 March 1955 vol 538 c108W
70. Mr. Logan

asked the Secretary of State for War in the light of thefact that 626 (Liverpool Irish) Heavy Anti-Aircraft Regiment, Royal Artillery, Territorial Army, represents the good will of 250,000 Irish men and women residing on Merseyside, if he will ensure that, in the reorganisation of anti-aircraft units now in progress, the unit shall retain its authorised dress and traditional pipe band.

Mr. F. Maclean

Now that the future of Territorial Army anti-aircraft regiments has been decided we are considering the problems of dress and bands for the new units which are being formed. It is too early to give an undertaking in respect of any particular regiment but I can assure the hon. Member that all claims to retain traditional bands and distinctive dress will be sympathetically considered.
