asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if he is aware that the £10 allowance for tropical kit is inadequate for officers of the W.R.N.S.; what articles they are required to buy; and what articles are supplied as free issue.

W. R. N. S. officers are required to purchase all articles of tropical kit except one pair of serge trousers. I am pleased to inform my hon. and gallant Friend that the tropical kit allowance for W.R.N.S. officers will be increased from £10 to £22 10s. with effect from 1st October, 1944.

Does the right hon. Gentleman realise how much this increase will be appreciated?
