HC Deb 26 May 1943 vol 389 cc1591-2W
Mr. Rostron Duckworth

asked the Minister of Aircraft Production in view of his advocacy of the admission of women to the higher grades of managerial staffs in factories, whether he can state with precision the type of work they should perform?

Sir S. Cripps

Women, where suitable, should, in my view, perform the same work as men in all grades* of managerial staffs. The distinction between individuals should be on the ground of capacity and not of sex.
