§ 53. Mr. Keeling
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether the 475 Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence will enter into negotiations with motor car manufacturers with a view to ensuring that they should suspend the introduction of new models in order not to divert skilled labour from armament manufacture?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
My Noble Friend would naturally be anxious to take any steps that might be necessary or desirable to prevent the diversion of labour from armament manufacture, but he is not aware of the grounds upon which my hon. Friend bases his suggestion that the introduction of new models in the motor industry has this effect.
