§ 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.
