Orders of the Day — Ministry of Fuel and Power Bill (23 Feb 1945)

We had a Debate the other day on the Export Guarantees Bill, and a full case was made out to justify the continuance of the powers, and I felt that on this occasion the Minister would have offered some justification for his powers and...

Orders of the Day — Ministry of Fuel and Power Bill (23 Feb 1945)

Mr Frank Collindridge: The hon. and gallant Gentleman referred to the decline of output during the reign of control, but failed to refer to pertinent facts during the control period.
