No, Sir. I am not aware that there is any general criticism as suggested by my hon. Friend, and I have no reason to suppose that, because they are under the chairmanship of persons who are on the staff of my Department, the decisions of the district man-power boards will be anything but impartial.
The other Service Departments are not represented on the Boards. They only come and state their case, as the Production Ministers do. It is the recruitment department of my Ministry that is involved.
