HC Deb 18 February 1942 vol 377 c1792
43. Captain Alan Graham (for Sir H. Williams)

asked the Minister of Supply the name and peace-time address of the civil servant by whose exertions production was maintained in a snowbound Royal Ordnance Factory; and why, in the reports of his successful endeavours, he was described by the pseudonym of Mr. Jones instead of by his proper name?

Sir A. Duncan

No, Sir. The individual concerned has expressly asked that his name should not be disclosed. Excellent work was done not only by the officer in question but by the personnel of the factory, the Armed Forces and other public services.

Mr. Lawson

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in the North and in Scotland factories and works are kept going every winter by great masses of workmen, and nobody ever thinks about them?
