HC Deb 11 December 1945 vol 417 cc348-9W
Mr. Gilzean

asked the Minister of Works if, where local authorities are unable to obtain a sufficient supply of unskilled labour for the preparation of housing sites, he will make it possible to obtain such labour from the military authorities.

Mr. Toralinson

Yes, Sir. Arrangements have now been made under which military labour, if available, may be used by local authorities for the advance preparation of housing sites in those districts where unskilled civilian labour is inadequate and where accommodation, if required, can be provided.
