HC Deb 06 February 1945 vol 407 cc1877-8
23. Sir Thomas Cook

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of difficulties in providing uniform for St. John Ambulance cadets, owing to coupons, and will he facilitate purchase.

Mr. Dalton

I regret that, in view of the present shortage of supplies, I cannot see my way to adopt my hon. Friend's suggestion.

Sir T. Cook

Does my right hon. Friend appreciate that the future of ambulance work lies in our ability to enthuse the rising generation, and that any restrictions discourage their public spirit?

Mr. Dalton

These restrictions are imposed upon us by the war, but I hope that in the future supplies will become available.
