33. Mr. GORDON HARVEY
asked the President of the Board of Trade if the 200,000 unattested married men whom the Government have decided can be taken from industry without impairing the commercial and financial needs of the country are in addiion to the 1,000,000 men stated by him on 21st December to be available for service in the Army?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Runciman)
The commercial and financial needs of the country were fully considered before the proposals of the Government were made. Only part of the additional 1,000,000 men sanctioned in December have so far been on the Votes.
