HC Deb 06 May 1915 vol 71 c1266
79. Mr. FELL

asked whether in numerous works engaged on Government work and outside private work a preference is being given to the outside work on account of its more profitable nature; and if the Government proposes where such conditions prevail to have the outside work in every case postponed to the Government work?


Yes, Sir, the powers conferred by the Defence of the Realm (Amendment) Act, 1915, will be used to secure the object the hon. Member refers to, so far as it may be found necessary.
