My hon. Friend will appreciate that no absolute guarantee can be given. But as stated in the Explanatory Memorandum on Concentration of Production, the Departments concerned will-take all measures open to them to assist the re-opening of closed factories. The Board of Trade keep a register of factories closed down under concentration arrangements and the Ministry of Labour a record of transferred workers so that their return to their old employment after the war may be facilitated.
