HC Deb 13 July 1948 vol 453 c84W
71. Sir J. Lucas

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the campaign for greater cleanliness, it is intended to make a larger supply of towels available for factories and offices.

Mr. Belcher

The campaign which the hon. Member presumably has in mind is that concerned with cleanliness in handling food. Supplementary coupons for towels are already issued for workers in the catering and food trades, as well as for those in factories and some other occupations. Supplies of towels are not sufficient to allow these arrangements to be extended to offices.
