HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 c690W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the urgent necessity of repairing homes damaged by enemy action, he will refrain from conscripting building trade operatives required for such repairs; and, where such men have already been called up, will he take steps to release them?

Mr. Bevin

Action on the lines suggested by my hon. Friend has been and will be taken as required. Large numbers have, in fact, already been released for these purposes.
