HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 cc324-5W
118. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Supply if he will have inquiries made into the staff now employed as ratefixers, clerks and shop foreman's assistants at the C.I.E.M.E., "Foxbury," Chislehurst, with a view to directing them to productive work.

Mr. J. Jones

No. My right hon. Friend is satisfied that the work undertaken by the staff of C.I.E.M.E. at "Foxbury," Chislehurst is essential and that the numbers employed are the minimum necessary for its satisfactory performance.
