HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 c652
18. Mr. Thorne

asked the Minster of Labour whether he will cause a review to be made of any cases in which people have five, six or seven servants to wait upon them in view of the fact that that number of servants in any one house is hampering our war efforts?

Mr. Bevin

In the Debate on 21st January, I outlined my proposals for ensuring the diversion of labour from unessential work to essential work as required.

Earl Winterton

Is my right hon. Friend aware that my hon. Friend's Question is viewed with considerable sympathy in many quarters?

Mr. Bevin

I am sure my hon. Friend always gets sympathy everywhere.
