In view of the fact that the Smithfield branch of the Transport and General Workers' Union this morning decided they would not handle meat brought to the market by the troops, is it the Minister's intention to extend the function of this new Committee to cover Smithfield?

I would suggest that we do not anticipate difficulties of this kind. They can legitimately be considered in the general Debate tomorrow.

Has the Minister taken very great care to see that no Communists have got on that Committee?
