HC Deb 28 June 1944 vol 401 c701
12. Mr. Burke

asked the Secretary of State for Air how many clothing coupons are allowed to officers per year for the renewal of uniform, etc.; and of these how many may be used for the purpose of civilian clothing.

Sir A. Sinclair

R.A.F. and W.A.A.F. officers receive forty-four clothing coupons in the first year of commissioned service and eighty-eight in each subsequent year for the maintenance of uniform and other clothing. Twenty-one of these coupons may be used for the purchase of certain specified articles of civilian clothing which are not worn with uniform.

Mr. Burke

Will the Minister make that concession available to other ranks as well?

Sir A. Sinclair

I should require notice of that question.
