asked the Home Secretary whether it is possible to make a free issue of fire service uniforms to members of industrial fire brigades and without the surrender of personal clothing coupons for such clothing worn in that service?
I have nothing to add at present to the reply given to my hon. and gallant Friend on 17th February last in reply to a Question on the same subject. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Production has the whole question of uniform still under review. As was explained to my hon. and gallant Friend, efforts at present are being made to retrench, rather than to extend, the supply of uniforms.
