Prisoners released for work as civilians keep the clothing they had as prisoners. Under recent arrangements they also are given 21 clothing coupons when the contract to work is signed and thereafter an issue on the scale allowed for non-resident civilians. An additional issue of 10 coupons annually allowed to industrial workers may be made through the Ministry of Labour.
