§ Mr. Onslow
asked the Secretary of State for Defence why officers in the Territorial and Army Volunteer Reserve II are neither issued with No. 2 (Service) dress uniform, nor given an allowance to purchase it, in view of the fact that other ranks have been issued with this uniform.
§ Mr. Reynolds
Officers of the TAVR II are permitted either to draw a No. 2 Dress uniform (Service Dress) of the soldier pattern, or to claim the cost in lieu. Under this arrangement a male officer may claim £10 and a female officer six guineas.
