HC Deb 19 January 1945 vol 407 c511W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that a Post-War Employment Association has been formed in the Postal and Telegraph Censorship Department and that official facilities have been given within that office for the circulation of literature and the collection of registration fees; and whether this activity is in accordance with the policy of his Department in regard to the registration and re-allocation after the end of the war in Europe of persons who become redundant in Government Departments.

Mr. Bevin

I am informed by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Information that this Association has been accorded facilities outside business hours similar to those normally given to benevolent, recreational or educational activities organised by the staff. The grant of these facilities, however, in no way implies his official recognition of the Association's activities. My proposals in Cmd. 6568 for the re-allocation of workers are intended to apply to persons released from Government Departments in the same way as to other persons.
