asked the Secretary of State for Air, whether the issue of overcoats and warm winter clothing to members of the Royal Observer Corps has now been completed?

Mr. Young:

I have been asked to reply. All members at posts now have a waterproof, fleece-lined storm coat, and issues to members at centres are in progress. If by warm winter clothing my hon. Friend means the new battle-dress type of uniform, my right hon. Friend would refer him to the reply which he gave to his hon. Friend the Member for Faversham (Sir A. Maitland) on 20th January.

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that there have been complaints with regard to other things besides over coats, and will he see that all members of this corps have the overcoats that are now being issued?

Mr. Young:

I cannot say, but I will convey the question to my right hon. Friend.
