HC Deb 09 March 1944 vol 397 c2220W
Mr. Petherick

asked the President of the Board of Trade why no extra clothing coupons are given to members of the Coastguard Service in respect of their uniforms.

Mr. Dalton

Full-time Coastguards receive an initial outfit of uniform and any necessary replacements in return for the annual surrender of a fixed number of coupons. A Coastguard's uniform outfit is worth 52 coupons, and the annual surrender has been reduced this year from 18 to 16 coupons.
