HC Deb 23 May 1947 vol 437 cc318-9W
Commander Noble

asked the President of the Board of Trade on what principle the values of clothing coupons for children in relation to those for adults were decided; and whether any reconsideration has been given to this subject in relation both to the amount of materials relatively required and the length of wear.

Sir S. Cripps

The coupon rates for children's and adults' clothing are in general based on the average material content. As regards the second part of the Question, my information does not suggest that reconsideration of these rates is -necessary.
