HC Deb 15 March 1945 vol 409 c385
45. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Prime Minister if he will issue a statement showing the advantages to the workers of the transfer of the factory inspectorate from the Home Office to the Ministry of Labour; and if it is intended to make this transfer permanent.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Churchill)

When a decision is reached as to the peace-time arrangement for the factory inspectorate, the Government will, of course, be ready to give reasons for their conclusion; but I am not yet in a position to make any statement.
