Senator NEEDHAM (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister of Defence, upon notice -

If any member of the Australian Expeditionary Forces who so far has not been supplied with the underclothing he is entitled to since enrolment, and which, owing to the advent of cold weather, he has been compelled to purchase for his own comfort, will be refunded the amount of money expended in the purchase of such garment or garments?


Senator PEARCE - The answer is-

The Department is not aware that any member of the Australian Imperial Force at Broadmcadows Camp has, so far, not been supplied with the underclothing to which he is entitled. Special instructions are given in Australian Imperial Force Orders to issue underclothing to all unallotted troops, as well as to members of the Australian Imperial Force units. If there are any such cases representations should be made by the person concerned to his commanding officer for consideration.
