§ Captain Orr
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is the present practice regarding the supply of uniforms by his Department to university officer training corps; and whether such officer training corps, including that of Queen's University, Belfast, are supplied with combat kit and No. 2 dress.
§ Mr. Richard
Members of the University Officers' Training Corps are provided with two suits of battle dress. Combat 227W dress is normally available for loan to O.T.C. contingents for training and other exercises with the Regular Army. It is sometimes possible to provide No. 2 dress on loan for special occasions.
