HC Deb 17 October 1944 vol 403 cc2196-7
50. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Prime Minister when His Majesty's Government propose to make a statement on plans for transfer of war workers to civilian industry.

The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mr. Tomlinson)

I have been asked to reply. My right hon. Friend is not yet in a position to say when the White Paper on this subject will be issued, but he hopes that it will be shortly.

Mr. Bellenger

Is there any hope of the issue of this White Paper before the end of the Session?

Mr. Tomlinson

There is always hope.
