HC Deb 24 October 1944 vol 404 cc4-5
12. Petty Officer Alan Herbert

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is now possible to remove the bookstall from Parliament Square without danger to the State.

Sir J. Grigg

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Astor

Will my right hon. Friend see that no men will be taken away from work on bomb-damaged houses to remove this structure?

Sir J. Grigg

I think that that question is a little unnecessary. We have a fairly clear idea of the priorities in the use of labour.
