§ 7. Mr. CHORLTON
asked the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence whether any modification has taken place in the control of priority of manufacture of various supplies; and whether he takes any action at the present time to regulate within any works the priority of the orders going through?
§ Sir T. INSKIP
The Government, as was indicated in the recent Debate on defence in this House, have not thought it necessary to ask for the compulsory powers which would be requisite for either of the purposes referred to by my hon. Friend.
§ Mr. CHORLTON
Is it definitely the case that the right hon. Gentleman has no power to order priority of work within a workshop at present?
