HC Deb 20 April 1948 vol 449 c127W
75. Mr. Spearman

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will arrange for surgical belts to be available without the complicated method of giving up coupons and asking for a refund from the Board of Trade.

Mr. Belcher

No. Surgical belts of not more than 6 inches in width specially designed for a number of specified conditions are already available coupon-free. Other types cannot be thus clearly defined and some may be worn in place of other rationed under-garments.
