HC Deb 18 June 1941 vol 372 cc646-7
49. Mr. Granville

asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the appointment of a Minister for War Production with full powers to carry out a policy for the conscription of our full industrial resources, to include uniform hours, rates of pay and working conditions in factories and the regulation of priorities in materials?

The Prime Minister

No, Sir.

Mr. Granville

Will my right hon. Friend use his great authority to see that not a single hour is lost in war production factories at the present time?

The Prime Minister

I should have enough to do if I were to undertake that.
