asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can furnish a more explicit interpretation of the Consumer Rationing Order (Statutory Rule and Order, 1943, No. 535) than that contained in the explanatory note; and, in particular, state the significance of paragraph (c), namely, babies' day-gowns classed with night-gowns?

This Order embodies s number of Minor amendments, which experience has shown to be necessary, in the clothes rationing system. The change in the pointing of babies' day-gowns is designed to meet difficulty experienced in the trade in distinguishing between babies' day-gowns, the coupon value of which was previously two, and babies' night-gowns, the coupon value of which was three. Both are now pointed at three coupons.
