§ MR. LABOUCHERE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War why the Staff sergeants major in the Transport Branch are allowed to wear plain clothes when off duty, and why this privilege is not accorded to the Staff sergeants major in the Supply Branch, although the duties of both are the same; and whether this apparent inequality can be remedied?
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
I am not aware of any inequality such as my hon. Friend indicates. The regulations as to the wearing of plain clothes by Staff sergeants major in the Transport Branch and the Supply Branch of the Army Service Corps are identical.
