§ Mr. J. Dugdale
asked the Minister of Aircraft Production, how many plants producing aero-engines have been compelled to effect changes in their managements on account of an inadequate standard of efficiency; how many plants have been put under Government controllers for the same reason; and whether he is satisfied that no further steps can be taken to bring up the level of the least efficient plants to that of the most efficient?
§ Colonel Llewellin
The answer to the first two parts of the Question is "None, Sir." As regards the last part, it is my constant endeavour to increase the efficiency of factories engaged on aircraft production, and I have in several instances recently persuaded firms to strengthen their managements.
