HC Deb 24 July 1950 vol 478 c27
47. Mr. S. O. Davies

asked the Prime Minister, having regard to Mr. Truman's official declaration on 19th July, to what extent the Government proposes to divert our economic resources to defence purposes.

The Prime Minister

This is not a matter which can appropriately be dealt with by Question and answer. I suggest that my hon. Friend should await the Debate later this week.

Mr. Emrys Hughes

Are the Government keeping in mind the fact that the more we adopt a guns before butter policy the more we are likely to create Communism in this country?
