asked the Secretary of State for War why repatriation baggage entitlement for officers of East Africa Command has been doubled while that of other ranks has been halved.

I am not aware of any such arrangement. There has been some standardisation of baggage entitlement to simplify work at the ports, but in most cases this has increased the allowance for other ranks. I am, however, making inquiries in East Africa Command and will write to my hon. Friend.
