§ 51. Mr. GEORGE TERRELL
asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the possibility of an early peace, he is now in a position to make any statement as to the arrangements which have been made to wind up contracts for the manufacture of munitions and to find employment for the workpeople engaged thereon?
§ Mr. TERRELL
As this is a matter of great importance, may I ask when the light hon. Gentleman thinks he can make a statement?
As a large number of people may be thrown out of employment at short notice, can the right hon. Gentleman say what steps are being taken to avoid that?
§ Mr. PRINGLE
Will the right hon. Gentleman make representations to the 1460 War Cabinet that an opportunity should be given to the House to discuss this matter before the General Election?
