Robert James Manion (Minister of Railways and Canals)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. MANION:

That is the figure the men used. I hope my hon. friend will pardon my interruption; the reason I asked the question was that I wished to point out that perhaps half or two-thirds of those men, for all I know, have been carrying on throughout, certainly not at full time in many instances but at least to a certain extent. That is the
point I am making. These men who have been carrying on can hardly in fairness be compared with the men in equipment shops who have not been carrying on at all.
