asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings whether he is aware that responsible members of his staff, employed at the Rhyl office, were ordered to cease collections on behalf of the National Council of Labour Fund for aid to Russia; and as no objection was raised a few months ago to a similar collection under the patronage of Ali s. Churchill's Fund, whether he will take steps to see that the ban is lifted?

Yes, Sir. Permission was given for a collection in the Rhyl office, but owing to a misunderstanding, this was not given effect to in one Division. The matter has now been rectified.
