HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 c78W
113. Mr. Stubbs

asked the President of, the Board of Trade the total number of coupons allowed to workers from the South of Ireland working in this country.

Mr. Belcher

Workers from the South of Ireland get, as their basic clothing ration, 10 coupons for every three months that they remain in this country. They are also entitled to claim any occupational supplementary coupons allowed to workers here in similar employment. Those who arrive with inadequate clothing for health and hygiene are allowed a small issue of extra coupons on a strict needs test.
