HC Deb 28 March 1946 vol 421 c545
6. Mr. J. Lanģford-Holt

asked the Minister of Health whether he is satisfied that a sufficient number of building firms are fully employed in Shrewsbury.

Mr. Bevan

I am not aware of any firm not being fully employed, and so far as I know there is no building labour unemployed in Shrewsbury.

Major Guy Lloyd

Is this not rather exceptional? Is it not a fact that all over the country many building firms are unemployed because of the Minister's policy?

Mr. Bevan

No, Sir.
