HC Deb 14 May 1941 vol 371 c1209
45. Miss Ward

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the broad cast of Mr. Menzies and his appreciation of the part being played by women in the war effort, he will reconsider the various requests put forward by the women Members of this House which have been rejected?

The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Attlee)

The requests to which my hon. Friend refers concern a number of Departments. If it is felt that circumstances have so changed that any particular matter should be reconsidered, perhaps hon. Members would be good enough to address their representations to the Minister concerned.

Miss Ward

Is my right hon. Friend aware that the general policy regarding this essential work by women Members has been rejected, and can he give an answer on the general policy and not on Departmental policy?

Mr. Attlee

Perhaps the hon. Lady will put that question down. She asked a Question about the various requests.
