§ 69. Sir Alfred Beit
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether arrangements can be made to distribute through the Women's Voluntary Service and similar organisations, wool, for the purpose of providing the Home Guard with knitted comforts, as is done in the case of the other Fighting Services?
§ Mr. Dalton
No, Sir. Members of the Home Guard, unlike the other Fighting Services, have a full civilian ration in addition to the uniform which is issued to them, and I could not justify a coupon-free supply of wool for comforts.
