HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 c76W
105. Mr. Medland

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make the purchase of surgical belts coupon free.

Mr. Belcher

All surgical belts less than 6 in. wide which have certain attachments or are designed for use in certain postoperative conditions are coupon-free. Other belts which cannot be thus clearly defined must in fairness be rationed because they can be worn in the place of undergarments.
