§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the changed circumstances since the publication of the Economic Survey for 1947, he will issue a revised version of the table on page 29, giving the distribution of manpower necessary to achieve the Government's objectives; and what expansion of the numbers employed in the coal-mining, agricultural and textile industries is possible and desirable in the first six months of 1948.96W
§ Mr. Isaacs
The estimates desired by my hon. Friend could only be made as part of a revision of the Economic Survey for 1947 and of an Economic Survey for 1948. The Government have decided not to attempt to revise the Economic Survey for 1947; the preparation of an Economic Survey for 1948 is under consideration.
