HC Deb 28 November 1944 vol 404 cc2425-6W
Mr. R. Duckworth

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport what are the requirements of the Merchant Navy as regards the provision of woollen comforts during the winter.

Mr. Noel-Baker

It is not possible to give any total figures of these requirements, as the comforts required by individual officers and men vary considerably, Their requirements are, however, met from supplies provided by various voluntary organisations on production of special clothing coupons that have been issued to seamen for the purpose.
