HC Deb 28 January 1941 vol 368 cc418-9
49. Mr. Sloan

asked the Minister without Portfolio whether his study of reconstruction after the war will include the constructive proposals of the Labour party for national ownership of mines, transport, land and banks?

The Minister without Portfolio (Mr. Arthur Greenwood)

Yes, Sir. Constructive proposals from any responsible source will be welcomed and carefully considered.

Mr. Shinwell

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that it is going to be mighty difficult to ignore the constructive proposals of the Labour party after the war?

Mr. Sloan

Will the right hon. Gentleman keep in mind that the millions of working-class workers who are regimented in the military and industrial machine in this fight for democracy are looking forward to the complete socialisation of industry?
