64. Mr. GORDON HARVEY
asked if the returns collected under the National Registration Act have been examined and tabulated; and, if so, whether any use has been or is intended to be made of such information as the figures afford with a view to enlistment or other national requirements?
§ Mr. LONG
The Prime Minister desires me to reply to this question. The answer to the first part is, Yes. In answer to the second part of the question, I may perhaps be allowed to state that the National Register forms the basis and supplies the information upon which the new recruiting movement rests. It has assisted largely in the provision of munition workers, and has also provided the Government with reliable information as to what resources of labour are available for the various industries.
§ Mr. WHITEHOUSE
Will the right hon. Gentleman cause tabulated statistics to be circulated to the House?
