HC Deb 19 February 1947 vol 433 cc1183-4
65. Captain Marsden

asked the Minister of Food if he will arrange that all food coupons issued for February be available for a further period in view of the difficulties experienced by housewives in obtaining food under present conditions.

Dr. Summerskill

Yes, Sir. As my right hon. Friend announced yesterday, any food or soap coupons which were issued for the present rationing period, and which have not been used before the period ends, will be valid at any time during the next rationing period.

Captain Marsden

Is the hon. Lady aware that this immediate response by her Department to my Question will give much satisfaction?
