HC Deb 25 June 1941 vol 372 c1072W
Mr. Pickthorn

asked the Minister without Portfolio what is the relation between the Nuffield Reconstruction Survey and his functions?

Mr. Greenwood

The Social Reconstruction Survey was instituted on the initiative of the authorities of Nuffield College, and the conduct of the survey is in the hands of a committee appointed by the College authorities for that purpose. The subjects under investigation include the changes in the location of industry and the distribution of population which have been caused by the war, and a report will be submitted to my Noble Friend the Minister of Works and Buildings and myself. I anticipate that the report will be of value in the preparation of plans for post-war rehousing, resettlement and industrial transfer.
