§ 30. Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider changing the present clothes rationing scheme to one of coupons issued on a monetary value basis to obviate the present position where a person who buys an expensive high quality commodity, in fact, receives an unfair advantage in coupon values over the poorer person who has, through necessity, to purchase the cheaper and poorer quality goods for the same amount of clothing coupons.
§ Sir S. Cripps
No, Sir I am satisfied that the utility scheme ensures that good clothes can be bought inexpensively.
