HC Deb 06 February 1969 vol 777 c164W
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.
