asked the Secretary of State for War for what purposes the hoops are used which have been ordered for the Army?
I think my hon. Friend probably refers to the use of hoops for the physical training of the Auxiliary Territorial Service. They will be used for the same purposes for which they are regularly used in women's physical training colleges.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that those hoops were ordered by the physical training side of the Army, and were not an order from the A.T.S. direct?
The hon. Member is better informed than I am.
Will the right hon. Gentleman not waste wood in war-time?
The whole cost is about £100; so it does not waste very much wood.
