HC Deb 08 September 1942 vol 383 cc28-9
56. Mr. Gallacher

asked the Prime Minister whether he has considered a letter from the National Union of Distributive and Allied Workers, Yorkshire Division, demanding the immediate opening of a second front in Europe and pledging its fullest support and cooperation for its ultimate success; and what answer has he returned?

The Prime Minister

The hon. Member sent me a copy of the communication to which he refers; its receipt was acknowledged.

Mr. Gallacher

Would my right hon. Friend be kind enough to inform me, and the House, what form the acknowledgment took, and whether he proposes to do anything about it? [Interruption].

Major Petherick

Does not the Question raise matters whose military and strategical value may be very great, and is the right hon. Gentleman willing—[Interruption].

Mr. Gallacher

I am trying to be as pleasant as I can. [Interruption]. Surely I can have an answer?

Mr. Speaker

The hon. Gentleman must accept the answer given.
