§ 5. Mr. Teeling
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether men directed 28W to the mines, on being released, will be given extra clothing coupons comparable to the amount granted ex-Servicemen, in view of the fact that while in the mines they used 37 out of 60 civilian coupons for essential mining clothes in addition to the 10 extra coupons allowed to them.
§ Sir S. Cripps
No. I am satisfied that the arrangements made for meeting the special clothing needs of miners (which include, besides extra coupons, coupon free supplies of a considerable amount of special clothing and footwear) take due account of the extra wear and tear on their clothing.
