§ Mr. Hammersley
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the serious disadvantages under which the industries of this country will suffer by reason of the fact that for five years it has not been possible to give attention to post-war civilian requirements; and can instructions now be given to enable a small percentage of the available labour force to be employed on the preparation of the necessary prototypes.
§ Captain Waterhouse
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to my hon. and gallant Friends the Members for The Hartlepools (Colonel Greenwell) and North Kensington (Captain Duncan) on 8th July last.
