HC Deb 24 July 1947 vol 440 c1569
19. Mr. Sargood

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now prepared to reduce the qualifying period for the Industrial Ten clothing coupons below 22 hours a week.

Sir S. Cripps

Yes, Sir. I have decided that, as from the date of the next issue, the qualifying period will be 20 hours a week.

Mr. Sargood

May I express satisfaction with that decision, and assure my right hon. Friend that it will be very welcome to part-time workers?
