§ 108. Mr. Robens
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the tenants of prefabricated temporary houses are finding that the dockets allowed for curtain material provide only 11 yards of 48-inches wide material, which is insufficient to cover the windows of these houses and ensure some degree of 74W privacy; and whether he will be prepared to increase this allowance.
§ Mr. Belcher
The docket entitles the holder to buy 15 square yards of rationed curtain material, and a further quantity may be bought on surrendering coupons. The supply position does not justify an increase in this allowance, but other curtain materials, which can be bought without dockets, are available both on the ration and coupon free.
