§ 134. Sir W. Darling
asked the Minister of Supply if he is satisfied that the factory equipment in Scotland is adequate for the rearmament programme without the necessity of labour transfer.
§ Mr. J. Freeman
In one or two cases factory space is being expanded and additional plant installed, but in general I have no reason to think that firms in Scotland with whom rearmament orders are being placed cannot undertake the work with their existing equipment. There will be some movement of labour between firms, but it seems unlikely that any considerable transfer will be involved for the time being.
