HC Deb 15 May 1947 vol 437 cc1692-3
34. Commander Noble

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will remove coupon requirements from purchases of plastic garments until there is a general certainty of their proving satisfactory in wear.

Sir S. Cripps

No, Sir. Aprons of this material are already free of coupons, but as regards other garments, they contribute to the total supply of clothing against the ration, and the coupon requirement is a good deterrent to the wasteful production of unsatisfactory garments.
