asked the Secretary of State for War whether rifles, ammunition and denims that are or were held in charge of the Home Guard can now be made available to the Army Cadet battalions.

Sir J. Griģģ:

Ball ammunition is not issued to Army Cadets but the scale of rifles allotted to them is now under review. The demand for denims is so great that none can, I regret, be made available for the time being for Cadets.
