HC Deb 11 February 1941 vol 368 c1233W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister without Portfolio whether, in considering problems of reconstruction after the war is finished, any effort is being made to devise methods to prevent the poorest classes of the community from having their standard of living still further depressed as a result of the widespread loss of wealth due to the destruction of property by enemy action and to the cost of our own war effort?

Mr. Greenwood

Yes, Sir; the matter referred to in my hon. Friend's Question is one of the most important problems of social and economic reconstruction.
