§ 52. General Sir IVOR HERBERT
asked the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in view of difficulties that have arisen through the withdrawal of skilled workmen from certain industries, he has considered the advisability of taking measures for the compulsory registration of the male population of the Kingdom with a view to the employment of such men in the most effective manner for the energetic prosecution of the War?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
This can only be dealt with as part of the general question, on which a statement of the intentions of the Government is shortly to be made.
