asked the Minister of Supply whether instructions have been given that urgent munition production comes before Home Guard training, in view of the number of hours required in the new Order?
Adequate safeguards for cases of this nature are provided in the general instructions issued by the Army Council for the Home Guard.
Are the Government aware that there are very serious doubts on various matters?
No, Sir, I cannot say that I am aware of that.
Is the Minister aware that there is necessarily a difference in treatment in the approach to this problem in shadow factories and in private factories and that there are many anomalies which exist at the present time?
No, Sir, I should have to look into that.
