§ CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington, W.)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he can state when the House may expect to have the Return as to the Small Arras Factories, called for by the right hon. Member for 1014 West Birmingham and the hon. Member for East Herts; and whether it will be contrary to Rule 80 of the Ordnance Factory Rules for the employees of the Government factories to discuss the Return in question.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. BROMLEY DAVENPORT, Cheshire, Macclesfield)
The Return was in the hands of Members on the 5th instant. Rule 80 of the Ordnance Factory Rules only relates to the method of preferring complaints. If the employees of the Government factories have any complaints which arise out of the Return in question, it is open to them to prefer them in the usual manner in accordance with that rule.
