asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will reconsider his previous decision and allow part-time voluntary members of the N.F.S. and C.D. to retain the whole of their uniform, including tunic and Wellingtons, as some mark of appreciation for the unpaid services they have rendered to the nation.

The question what items of uniform part-time members of the National Fire and Civil Defence Services should be allowed to retain on leaving the Service was determined so long ago as the autumn of 1944. Practically all the personnel concerned have left the Services some time ago, and I regret that I am unable to reopen the question.
