HC Deb 18 December 1941 vol 376 c2088W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the fact that increasing numbers of women are being called up for National Service, he will take steps to ensure that adequate facilities are provided for those at work to do their shopping; and will he ask local authorities, chambers of commerce and other trade organisations to meet, as far as possible, the special needs of the working population?

Mr. Bevin

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on 27th November to a Question on the same subject by the hon. Member for Heywood and Rad-cliffe (Mr. Wootton-Davies).
