18. Mr. Hugh Lawson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what are the circumstances under which extra clothing coupons are issued to limbless persons; how many persons are now in receipt of such extra clothing coupons; and what proportion of persons eligible to receive such coupons have so far received them.

The President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Dalton)

Additional clothing coupons are issued by my Department to anyone suffering from physical disability which imposes excessive wear on clothing. About 65,000 applications have been granted during the past 12 months.
