HC Deb 16 July 1942 vol 381 c1369W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Minister of Labour which professional bodies have made arrangements to protect the businesses of individuals who are called up; and whether he will take steps to encourage organisations representing retail traders to take similar action?

Mr. Bevin

I am unable to give the information asked for in the first part of the Question nor do I think this is a matter in which my Department can effectively intervene.
