§ 27. Mr. Touche
asked the President of the Board of Trade what provisions are 1065 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.
