HC Deb 20 November 1947 vol 444 c1311
12. Mrs. Middleton

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider giving a few extra clothing coupons to people of adolescent age who, because of the fact that they have outgrown clothing bought during the rationing years, have no reserves which, by means of renovation, can be used again during the present emergency.

Mr. H. Wilson

The supplements for young people between the ages of 16½ and 18 were increased for this purpose in 1946, and it is not possible to make a further increase.
