asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will give an assurance that the new clothing coupons will be valid when detached from the new food ration books, as any other arrangement would be inconvenient to a large number of workers and others whose housekeeping is done for them but who purchase their own clothes?
Yes, Sir. The 1943/4 clothing coupons form a separate book which is bound inside the food book only for convenience in issue. It should be cut out of the food book after issue and is to be used separately. I should like to take this opportunity of urging that the name and address of the holder should be written on the cover of the clothing book when it is detached and that it should be kept safely.
