HC Deb 21 November 1949 vol 470 c4W
41. Mr. Fairhurst

asked the Minister of Supply if he will give an assurance that in any reduction in the number of productive employees in Royal Ordnance factories a reasonable proportion of the administrative staff in those factories is also made redundant.

Mr. G. R. Strauss:

Yes. Reductions in staff will certainly involve administrative as well as manual workers.
