HC Deb 07 December 1944 vol 406 c772W
Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Labour if he will favourable consider, in consultation with the Service Departments concerned, the immediate temporary release of selected personnel whom the Services are prepared to release where the application is sponsored by the appropriate Government Department in order to assist in the re-establishment of our export trade in cases where the absence of such personnel is calculated to lead not only to the temporary but also to the permanent loss of export trade with consequent unemployment to our people.

Mr. Bevin

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Central Bradford (Mr. Leach) on 28th September, a copy of which I am sending him.
