HC Deb 31 July 1947 vol 441 c85W
86. Mr. Fernyhough

asked the President of the Board of Trade if the will consider granting immediately additional clothing coupons to couples who are contemplating marriage.

Sir S. Cripps

Coupon equivalent certificates are already given to enable those setting up house for the first time to buy a limited quantity of sheets and curtain materials. I cannot see my way to go beyond this in present circumstances.
