The allocation of playing cards to the Forces for the year ending 31st August, 1943, has not yet been finally decided; but a preliminary allocation of 262,000 packs has been made, and this figure will be increased. I shall be happy to send my hon. Friend details of the final allocations, as soon as they have been settled.
