W) -r.The following U partial text of Mr. , ChurchiU't statement to the House of Commons today: 1 ' J , We have to call upon' the nation for a further degree of sacrifice .and ejtertion. i ' ' The year. 1941 has! seen tie major problem; of creating our ' production in factories and providing, equipment largely solved or on the high road to solution. , rThe crisis of equipment b vlargely over aod aa ever broad-enlnr flew Is now Insured. j The- crisis of manpower, and wonanpower is at -h&nd and, will dominate the j year IMS. ! This crisis comes on us for the'follow-; ing reasons: ' ' The great supply of plants has been constmcted . . i but they must be lully sUffed. j - We must maintain, the powerful v mobile arniy we have, created With ' . so much pains both for home defence and foreign expeditions.. ' . We must maintain our; armies In the East and be prepared, for ' the continuance and extension of heavy fighting there, j . We must provide -for. expansion of the air force "in 1942 and; for far greater expansion in 1943. We must provide modern equipment for large armies being raised and trained In- India. Apart from our needs,! we must keep our . engagements to send a substantial . supply of tanks, 'planes! and Other -war weapons and war commodi-. ties to Russia 1 . . j -. ; We have also had to forego very important supplies which we had expected from the United .States, but-which now with our consent have been diverted to Russia, -j i . . y-'- We have also to recognize that United States production only now is getting fully underway, and that the quotas we expected, will' J in - many respects be retarded. . . I i The Hotfso will remember how I have sever! times described la - the last five or six year the tints-table of - monition prodaetloa. First year nothing t all; second year very little; third yaari all yosi want. . i We are at too begianuir of the third year: The United State Is retting through the second year. Germany started the war already well into the foarth year; , if, s But all this disparity of preparation will rectify itself In; the mere : passage of time. We were at a . disadvantage in having to light a well-armed enemy with ill-armed or half -armed, troops. That phase is . over and 1 the jHun ,T!'in the future will "feel in bis own - person the sharpness of the weapons with-which he has. subjugated an unprepared, disorganized Europe and imagined, he was about to subjugate the world. In the future our men will fight m equal terms in technical equipment and a little later on they will fight on superior terms. . ' . ) ) ' It had not been necessary nor indeed would it have been helpful to make ! the demands upon the nation which I am about to set forth. Thoee demands : will intimately affect, the lives' of' many men and women. .They .will also affect the life of the nation in the - .- following ways: , I 'Mi , There , will be a farther very definite curtailment of the amenities we hitherto have been ' able to preserve, ij '. ' f These demands wilL not affect physical health nor that contentment of spirit, which comes from . serving great causes, but they will make " further- inroads upon the comfort and convenience of a very , large number and upon the character and shape of our daily life. ' . What we have to make is a definitely harder turn of the screw. I - promised lSl . months - ago blood, tears, toil and' sweat. There has not yet been, thank Cod, so much blood as was expected. There has not been so many tears, but there! la another instalment of toil and y sweat. 6f inconvenience and self-denial, which I am sure, will be accepted with cheerful and proud alacrity by all parties and all classes in the British nation. 1 The severity of what Is required must not be under-rated. The population is 4 (.750.100. of these IJJtSt.MO le.m.eo men and . njS5t.0 women are between f4 and (5 years of age. , Making' allowance for the increase' of pop- - tilation, we have already reached by the 27th month of this-war the same employment of women in industry, services and forces as in the 48th month of the last yT- : ' ( - ! My words are intended to convey the general aspect and I prospect to the House. A White Paper will be presented before second, reading of the bill which will give an exact definition. . ; . . i There will be three important changes in the case of males. Hitherto reservation from mili-. tary service has been- by occupational blocs. It is now proposed to ' change ' over gradually - from this system of bloc reservation to' a -system of individual deferment . The method ; of ,. reservation under the schedule of reserved occupations was a . sufficiently good . and flexible instrument sol -. long as there was not acute shortage of manpower. . It avoided the waste 6f odd men with highly specialized attainments which I so disastrously ..'characterized the opening years of the last war. t ' .; There has been a very careful and steady husbanding of -those ho possess specialized atain-. merits of every kind through " knowledge and experience. The . system of bloc reservations has j already been' modified by ihtro-f' ducing protected work which pro-, vide a rough test of the importance tohe war effort of the work onsen Mr. Churchill's upon which persona in a particu lar shop: -were engaged. The situation now demands that there should be a further refinement in the system so that men should be no longer reserved -by virtue of their occupation but the sole test should be the importance to the war effort of the work, on which they are engage. For -Instance, 4 carpenter may be doing work of ! direct importance to an airplane or a ship, but he may also be makingi a , piece of furniture. Clearly, there must be discrimination at the point we .now ."have reached, and the test must always be the relation to the lirar' effort We propose to raise the age of reservation bj& one-year steps," at monthly j intervals .commencing Jan. 1, 1942. That U to say, every month the reserved age will rise by one year, thus bringing or new quota into the area of this more specially i individual,' and detailed examination.' , . . -I - - i In! this process, individual deferment will be granted only, to men engaged on work 6f national importance.! Services. such' as tl)e merchant! navy and civil defence will be' excluded from this scheme. : The' second great change affect-ing men is the raisings of the age for compulsory military service from 41 to SU v Men called up over the age of, 41' will not be posted for the more active duties with the forces. They will vbe used for the static or sedentary duties which will liberate' younger men. It is not intended to call up men . not physically fit, but there are many tasks In the modem armed! forces which can be discharged by men who will not be called upon to inarch with the troops. , . ; ' i i i - . In raising the age of legal ob-Iigation.from 41. to 31 we, are bringing under review nearly 2,-750.000 meri. : v ' We may later have to advance another .decade. 'In the last war we went to 87. It is not necessary to do this at the present time because, mercifully, i the j slaughter, has .been much, less. ... f - The third , change is to the aide of youth. It is-proposed to lower the age of military service to 18i, thus bringing in an addi-tidnal 70,p0(Krecrults to the armed forces during the-' calendar i year 1942, ;-. The first half of the 1923 class ' will . be " registered on ' Saturday, Dec 13, and callingup will commence in January 1942. 1 The1 second half ;of th '1923 class will be registered earl' In the new year. ; !.;; (Emmanuel . shin well. Labor, Seaham, Intervened . , to ' : ask whether the House was to under stand that youths of 19 would now be despatched overseas. Mr. Churchill continued:) : It the House release -the Government from its . undertakings that will be so. The matter is entirely in the hands of the House. .There is another chance which applies both to boys and girls.'. It Is proposed to register boys sad girls between the ages of If and IS. This will be done by a defence regulation. We must be careful particularly that our boys don't run loose during this, time of stress .i,:l ''.- -' '!'' '' All boys and girls In these age groups- will be registered and subsequently Interviewed under' ar rangement made by youth Icom- mittees'of the local education au thorities who will thus be able to establish and maintain direct con tact with all of them i . . We do not propose at the present time to extend compulsion to join the services df any married wom an, not -even childless married women . '. -. :' -'.!"; i ? As regards married women we have already power to direct' married women- into industry but this power will continue to be used with discretion. , . ,. 3 But there are some "married women without children or other household responsibilities and we may have to call upon them to go to another area where industrial services are needed ! , ' - women are already playing a great part in this war but they must play still greater.. .. All women above .It years are already liable to be directed by the Ministry of Labor and National Service into Industry. ..!. ' : We have not power at .present. according to our reading of law. to require women to serve la the uniform of auxiliary forces ' of Crown or eivlf defence.! . We are asking Parliameat vto confer that power upon tu subject to the rule that; aU affected wUl have exactlyi the same rights and safeguards as men who are subject to compulsory military service. New power wm be applied In the first instance, and probably for some time to come, only to' unmarried women between the ages of 20 and 30 years.) . i . ; - We have had 9 very easy time for the last' isix! months because the enemy has been occupied in Russia, but atlany time Hitler may. recognize his (defeat! by the -Russian armies arid endeavor to cover his disaster in! the east by- wreaking his baffled) fury upon us. !
