HC Deb 27 February 1941 vol 369 c648W
Captain Poole

asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider merging the present separate movement control organisations established by each of the three service Departments and the Ministry of Supply into one co-ordinated Department which should control all movements connected with the country's war effort, thereby effecting considerable savings in rail and road transport and in expenditure?

Mr. Attlee

I do not consider that the merging of the movement control organisation of the three Service Departments and the Ministry of Supply would in present circumstances conduce either to greater economy or increased efficiency in the prosecution of the war.
