HC Deb 18 April 1946 vol 421 c475W
Mr. Deer

asked the President of the Board of Trade, if he will give favourable consideration to allowing voluntary ambulance society members to replace badly worn uniforms, without having to surrender personal clothing coupons.

Mr. Belcher:

Full time members of voluntary ambulance societies make a token surrender of six or eight coupons and in return are allowed, coupon free, an initial outfit of uniform and replacements on an agreed scale. Part time members on duty for 48 hours or more every month may if they choose receive their uniform on these terms. Those who serve for less than 48 hours a month are allowed coupons for an initial outfit on recruitment but we should not be justified in enabling them to replace these uniforms coupon free.
