HC Deb 08 January 1942 vol 377 cc58-9W
Sir J. Lucas

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply whether he has yet come to any decision as to the best means of employing any available part-time labour from the Auxiliary Fire Service and air-raid precautions services, either for their off days or when standing by; and whether he has been in communication with the requisite authorities on the subject?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

Facilities for part-time workers exist in a number of undertakings working for the Ministry of Supply. The Ministry is in consultation with the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Home Secretary to find ways by which existing difficulties can be overcome and use made in munitions work of Auxiliary Fire Service and A.R.P. personnel.
