HC Deb 17 December 1941 vol 376 c1939
53. Captain Gammans

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply whether he is prepared to inaugurate schemes of work, and if necessary training, for full-time Civil Defence workers in their off-duty periods?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

The Ministry of Supply has arranged through its regional organisation to bring to the notice of firms working for the Ministry which suffer from a shortage of man-power the facilities now available for the employment of Civil Defence workers subject to recall. Part-time employment presents many practical difficulties, which are now being examined.
