§ 120. Brigadier Prior-Palmer
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that women's R.A.F. waterproof coats have now been released for sale to the public free of coupons and that priority has been given to towns manufacturing for export; and whether he will give the names of the towns which have received an allocation of such coats.
§ Sir S. Cripps
Government surplus clothing marked as such is coupon-free, and no doubt the women's R.A.F. waterproof coats in question fall under this category. No priority of the kind suggested has been given and the last part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.
