HC Deb 17 July 1946 vol 425 cc216-7W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the special coupons issued to Service personnel attached to headquarters in London who are not occupying married quarters and therefore must maintain a home, are not acceptable for fabrics for loose coverings and curtains; and whether he will make some compensating issue to their Wives.

Sir S. Cripps

The special coupons are given to enable officers to purchase civilian clothing for off-duty wear. The wives concerned, if they are setting up house for the first time in this country, may well qualify for priority dockets.
