HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1507
17. Mr. Lipson

asked the Minister of Aircraft Production in how many instances he has had to change the management of factories engaged in aircraft production in order to secure more efficient production?

The Minister of Aircraft Production (Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon)

There have only been two cases in which managements have been changed as a result of the exercise of compulsory powers by my Department. There have, however, been several instances in which managements have been changed or strengthened at the request or suggestion of my Department.

Mr. Lipson

Does not that answer show that the allegations which are made widely about incompetency in management are hardly justified by the facts?
