My Pants for Real People book recommends "Perfect Waistbands" non-roll monofilament nylon waistband interfacing

https://www.palmerpletsch.com/product/waistband-6-yards/

but I don`t think it is available in the UK.  Is there anything else which would be similar?  Otherwise what do people recommend?  I`ve used the Vilene iron-on slotted stuff before but can`t say I`m over-impressed

I have Kenton trimmings book marked for Ban roll http://www.kentontrimmings.co.uk/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=82_84_207&products_id=415

I’ve not used it, but I think the link came from Morgan on the old site. I don’t know how it compares to peters ham, but I agree the Vilene slotted waistband is rubbish for folding during wear.
Procrastination get behind me

Petersham should work fine.  Not sure if ban rol would wear through fabric after a while.  It's very stiff and quite harsh.

Is Petersham what most people would use for trouser waistbands?  If so, do you have a favourite supplier?

I went on-line to see if I could find a UK stockist for monofilament nylon waistband interfacing as recommended  for McCall's M6901 and the Pants for Real People book and a link to this thread popped up  :D

Does anyone have advice for what to get instead?  @sewingj what did you finally use please?

@Sewingsue  I`m embarrassed to admit that I gave up on my trousers before getting to the interfacing!  I did buy some from https://www.gillarnold.co.uk/shop  but she doesn`t appear to have any at the moment (I can`t find mine or I would offer to send it to you)
@Stitchalot recommended this to me - and might be able to suggest another supplier

Sorry to have raised embarrassing memories @sewingj    ;)
I just thought you might be the one person I 'knew' who had found an answer.

I bought some from Celia Banks when I did a class with her, the website is www.sew-fundamental.co.uk, and I think she runs classes at Bambers.
