§ 54. Mr. Gledhill
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production whether, in requisitioning factories which are already fully employed, he will make the fullest inquiries as to alternative accommodation, not only in the London district but also in the provinces, and especially in the North of England?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production (Colonel Llewellin)
Yes, Sir. Every effort is made to find suitable alternative premises before factories in full operation are requisitioned.
Where these firms are in the provinces, will the organisations or firms in the provinces have an equal opportunity of carrying on the particular type of work?
§ Colonel Llewellin
We must place any of these dispersal schemes as near as possible to the place where the firm is which is being dispersed. We do this from the point of view of housing of the workers and other considerations.
