HC Deb 09 November 1943 vol 393 cc1064-5
27. Mr. Touche

asked the President of the Board of Trade what provisions are made for extra clothing coupons for persons engaged in the distribution of coal; and whether any improvement can be made in the present arrangements?

Mr. Dalton

Persons engaged in coal distribution received in the last rationing period 10 extra coupons. They will receive the same supplement in the present period. I regret that, owing to the shortage of supplies, I cannot see my way to increase this allowance.
