§ 48. Mr. Emrys Hughes
asked the Prime Minister if he will make a broadcast appeal for recruits for the Home Guard.
§ The Prime Minister
His Majesty's Government are naturally considering the best means for obtaining recruits for the Home Guard. But I have no statement to make on the subject today.
§ Mr. Hughes
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Minister of Defence was absent from the first Home Guard parade last night? Is he now on open arrest awaiting court-martial?
§ Captain Richard Pilkington
In view of the events last night, can we hope to have more effective co-operation from hon. Members opposite towards the establishment of the Home Guard?
