asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that many Army cadets have not had greatcoats issued to them; and will he take steps to provide them before the winter from those handed in by men on demobilisation and other sources.

Greatcoats have been issued for the equipment of cadets attending instructional courses, up to 2½ percent. of the strength of the Army Cadet Force. I am at present looking into the possibility of a wider issue, in relation to other commitments and liabilities.
