HC Deb 28 July 1943 vol 391 c1569
48. Mr. Mander

asked the Prime Minister whether it is intended that Sir William Beveridge's inquiry into the problem of unemployment will receive encouragement and support from the Government?

The Prime Minister

I have no statement to make to-day which would add anything to the replies given to my hon. Friend on 27th January last, and to my hon. Friend the Member for East Islington (Mrs. Cazalet Keir) on 13th April.

Major Petherick

Will the Prime Minister assure the House that he does not intend to resign in favour of Sir William Beveridge?
