1. Captain McEwen

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that certain officials of his Department are accosting individual citizens and asking them if they are doing all they can do to help the war effort; and by whose authority this is being done.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mr. Assheton)

My right hon. Friend is not aware of any such action being taken by officials of his Department, and would be glad to have particulars of the facts on which my hon. Friend bases his allegation, in order that he may make inquiry.
