Alf explains to Renee how he had some fun with Bet but she isn't impressed. Ivy is determined to go to France as she's senior machinist and shop steward. Ida decides she doesn't want to go to France as she's never left England. Mike organises a draw to decide who's going to France. Mike tells Steve he's too naive for the job. Steve tells him it's his fault for not delegating enough. Mike thinks he should move to the London office to help Eric Williams there. Deirdre feels redundant as Tracy starts playgroup. Bet is furious to discover Alf's been pretending to fancy her. Hilda demands that her name be included in the draw. Mike pulls the draw, Vera, Hilda, two machinists (May Thomas and Florrie Smith) and Eunice Marriott from packing win. Ivy tries to hide her disappointment. Paul Haines warns Suzie not to put people off buying the house. Suzie advises Steve to take the London job, to get away from Mike.
