HC Deb 22 January 1941 vol 368 c193W
Mr. Profumo

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production, whether he is aware that cases are occurring where individuals are being authorised to inspect business premises with a view to requisitioning, without previously informing the manager or proprietor of their intended arrival or in any way inviting their co-operation; and is he satisfied that when such factories are under consideration for requisitioning sufficient effort is being made to avoid disclocation of local labour?

Colonel Llewellin

Requisitioning is in some cases a most urgent matter and it is not always possible to inform the manager or proprietor of a business of an intended inspection before the inspection takes place. Every effort is made to effect the requisitioning of premises with as little inconvenience and dislocation of local labour as is reasonably possible and with the co-operation of the management.
