HC Deb 20 July 1943 vol 391 c697W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any statement to make regarding the reclothing of men and women when demobilisation of the Services begins; and, in view of the probable demand for assisting European countries and the two years required for trainees to become efficient, what steps he proposes to take to build up an adequate labour force and stocks of material?

Mr. Dalton

My Department is now discussing with the Service Departments the best means of reclothing men and women demobilised from the Services and with the industries concerned plans for resuming full activity as soon as circumstances permit.
