HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 c961W
Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that sub-contractors who are almost entirely engaged on war work would prefer to have direct contracts because they feel they are not directly engaged in the war effort, and whether, in these circumstances, he will consider the introduction of some form of stamp to be used on notepaper by firms whose present production is more than 75 per cent. war material, and of a form of certificate to be displayed in their factories with the object of keeping the war effort constantly before employers and employed?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

While I have every sympathy for the object which my hon. Friend has in mind, I regret that after consideration the administrative difficulties of operating such a scheme are insuperable at present.
