HC Deb 26 November 1942 vol 385 cc903-4W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Air what arrangements are now being made for members of the Women's Auxiliary Air Force to be supplied with service shoes of unusual sizes, in view of the fact that coupons are no longer issued to enable those who take unusual sizes to buy their shoes in civilian shops?

Sir A. Sinclair

Royal Air Force units are authorised, on production of a medical certificate, to purchase suitable shoes locally for W.A.A.F. personnel who cannot be fitted from the extensive range of sizes and fittings in Service stocks. Under arrangements made by the Board of Trade, the appropriate official form is accepted by retailers in lieu of coupons.
