§ 18. Mr. GRETTON
asked if any arrangements have yet been made for transferring business with persons supplying munitions of war or proposing to supply them from the War Office to the new Ministry of Munitions; and, if so, when the transfer of business will be made?
§ Mr. TENNANT
When the Bill constituting the Ministry of Munitions has become law an Order in Council will be made under it transferring certain branches of work of the kind referred to in the question to the new Ministry as from dates mentioned in the Order or agreed upon between the Departments concerned. I am not in a position at present to name any specific date.
§ Mr. GRETTON
Am I to understand from that answer that no change will be made until the Order in Council has been issued and notice has been given?
