HC Deb 23 March 1943 vol 387 cc1474-5
61. Mr. Thorne

asked the Minister of Production whether he has any estimate of the number of factories which receive broadcasting music on Fridays and Saturdays?

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Production (Mr. Garro Jones)

I regret that no estimate in the form asked for by my hon. Friend is available.

Mr. Thorne

Will the decision given in the House of Lords the other week make any difference to the entertainment?

Mr. Garro Jones

I prefer not to make a statement about that subject at the present time, as the matter which interests my hon. Friend is at present under discussion.

Mr. Rhys Davies

Is anybody in the hon. Gentleman's Department studying whether music in factories has the slightest effect at all on production?

Mr. Garro Jones

That does not arise out of this Question.
