HC Deb 21 March 1944 vol 398 c665
55. Major Nield

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will consider allowing a reasonable number of clothing coupons to other ranks of the armed forces returning home after a substantial period of service overseas in order to enable them to replace garments, additional to service issue, which have been lost or become worn out during such service abroad.

Mr. Dalton

I have made arrangements to enable members of the Forces to replace, up to a reasonable standard, civilian clothing which has been lost or destroyed. These arrangements apply to members of the Forces returning from overseas.

Mr. Bellenger

Would the concession include coupons to replace pyjamas?

Mr. Dalton

No, Sir.
