HC Deb 11 June 1940 vol 361 cc1130-1
46. Mr. Liddall

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that an amalgamation of the Ministry of Supply, the Department responsible for Aircraft Production and the labour-supplying department of the Ministry of Labour, would reduce the clog upon munitions production now caused by these three controls operating separately; and whether he will take the necessary action to do away with this hindrance to production?

Mr. Attlee

As at present advised, I am not satisfied that production is impeded by the existing allocation of functions between the Departments named or that it would be accelerated by the amalgamation suggested.
