§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of MUNITIONS (Mr. Kellaway)
I beg to move, "That leave be given to bring in a Bill to amend the Ministry of Munitions Act, 1915."
The Ministry of Munitions Act provided for the creation of a Ministry for the production of munitions during the present War. A doubt has arisen as to whether the powers of the Ministry can be used to facilitate demobilisation and the transfer of industry from war to peace production. The object of the amending Bill is to remove that doubt.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
§ Bill ordered to be brought in by Mr. KELLAWAY, Mr. Churchill, and Major-General Seely.
