asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that chemists are not allowed to sell pneumonia jackets without coupons, even when ordered by a doctor; and, as these are only required in cases of extreme urgency and coupons are not always available, will he take steps to see that lives shall not be endangered through rigid adherence to these instructions?

Yes, Sir. I am looking into this matter and will write to my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as possible.
