Mr George Garro-Jones: The policy of His Majesty's Government since 22nd June, 1941, has been to supply the Russians with everything for which they have asked and which we could provide.

Joint Production Committees and Works Councils (3 Aug 1944)

Mr George Garro-Jones: The House will be quick to recognise that the hon. Member for East Wolverhampton (Mr. Mander) was speaking about something of which he has particular knowledge.

Joint Production Committees and Works Councils (3 Aug 1944)

Mr George Garro-Jones: I would not deny that that is a factor in the comparative slowness in forming these bodies, but it is by no means the only one.

It is as well to bear in mind that there has been no compulsion, other than the compulsion of the common...
