HC Deb 01 March 1946 vol 419 c436W
Lieut.-Colonel Price-White

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he is aware that a large number of airmen who are anxious to sleep in pyjamas are only able to do so if they can obtain coupons from their relatives; and whether this desire can now be met by supplying pyjamas to all ranks of the R.A.F. through Service channels.

Mr. Strachey

This subject has been considered more than once, and I have every sympathy with the purpose of the hon. and gallant Member's Question. At present, however, as my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade stated in his reply of 25th February to the hon. Member for Sutton Coldfield (Sir J. Mellor) it is not possible to make this concession owing to the shortage of supplies.
