HC Deb 04 February 1941 vol 368 cc813-4W
Captain Elliston

asked the Minister of Labour how many industrial areas are increasingly dependent on woman labour; and how many of these areas have been provided with day nurseries in accordance with his pronouncement?

Mr. Bevin

The programme envisaged by the Government and the demands on man-power by the Services will involve an increasing dependence on woman labour in all parts of the country. The position is being kept under constant review. The number of day nurseries established or in course of establishment is 30.
