§ 51. Mr. Hall-Caine
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider making recommendations for the creation of an order of efficiency which could be conferred upon industrial workers, male or 770 female, in recognition of meritorious service in the advancement of the war effort in factory or workshop?
§ The Prime Minister
Proposals of this kind have recently been very carefully examined. It is considered that a more extended use of the existing awards would be preferable.
§ Mr. Hall-Caine
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in the United States a similar order has had very great effect?
