Orders of the Day — Supply: Police (Clothing Coupons) (26 May 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: I desire to raise the question of clothing coupons for the uniformed police. I will endeavour to allow the hon. Gentleman who is going to reply just a minute or two in which to say "Yes" or "No." I hope he will forgive me if I do not do much more than this, because it is a little difficult when almost half the very brief time has been taken up in this necessary and important business for the...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Police (Clothing Coupons) (26 May 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: In so far as they are not sedentary, they are surely less fortunate than others, since the wear and tear of their clothes is more. The mathematics of the situation are these.

Of these, it was estimated that the police could reasonably be expected to surrender 18 coupons, thus leaving them...

Mr Tom Driberg: It may be, but it is rather an unfortunate situation that arises, I maintain, from the excessive demand for coupons from them—[Interruption.]—I want to get through this as quickly as possible, if the hon.

Nurses (Scotland) Bill: Post-War Germans (Education) (27 May 1943)

Mr Tom Driberg: I do not want to say anything about personalities. I merely want to urge the right hon.
