§ 47. Lord C. BERESFORD
asked the Prime Minister whether, on every fuse manufactured in this country, a royalty of is is paid by the Government under a German patent for the benefit of Krupp, of Essen; if so, whether this money is paid to the Public Trustee by the British armament firms for the account of Krupp; and whether he can state the amount of money due to Krupp after the expenditure of ammunition at Neuve Chapelle alone?
§ Mr. TENNANT
My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this. I am making inquiries. Perhaps the Noble Lord would repeat his question.
§ Sir A. MARKHAM
Will the right hon. Gentleman make inquiries into the royalties paid to German firms for submarines?
