HC Deb 10 September 1941 vol 374 c162
11. Captain Profumo

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the rapid expansion of the Royal Air Force and the permanent nature of their stations, he will consider, in order to alleviate the growing pressure on civil laundries, the establishment of Royal Air Force laundries at each permanent aero drome capable of dealing with the washing and cleaning of all equipment on the station?

Sir A. Sinclair

In general, the establishment of R.A.F. laundries would not be an economic solution of the difficulties referred to by my hon. and gallant Friend. The question of the supply of labour for maintaining the laundry services of the country is under consideration by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour and National Service.
