HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 c1270W
Sir W. Jenkins

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply, why the recommendation made by the South Wales Area Board and the responsible officers of the area to re-open a certain works has been turned down; and will he reconsider the matter with a view of re-starting one industry when all other industries are closed down in that area?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

So far as the Ministry of Supply is concerned, no recommendation for the re-opening of the works referred to has been put forward by the South Wales Regional Board. The second part of the Question does not, therefore, arise.
