HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 cc335-6
11. Colonel Viscount Suirdale

asked the Minister of Labour how soon the distribution of the booklet, "Release and Resettlement," to the Services will be completed; and how soon copies will be made available to the public.

Mr. Butler

Sufficient copies of the booklet have already been issued for distribution in the Navy and the R.A.F. Receipt of copies by individuals will of course depend upon their location. In the case of the Army where larger numbers are required, it will be a few weeks before all the booklets are issued. Sales to the public will commence as soon as the Services have been supplied.

Lieut-Commander Gurney Braithwaite

Is it intended to grant any further priority for the release and resettlement of Socialist politicians?
