HC Deb 11 April 1945 vol 409 c1819
41. Colonel Lyons

asked the Minister of Works what decision has now been reached on the question of useful employment of prisoners of war on such urgent work as the preparation of housing sites, main drainage and sewerage extensions.

Mr. Sandys

The employment of prisoners of war on work of this kind is at present being considered, but I am not yet in a position to add anything to the statement I made on March 23rd.

Colonel Lyons

In view of the pressing need for work of this character to be completed, can the right hon. gentleman expedite a decision?

Mr. Sandys
