§ 49. Mr. BILLING
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the recent criticisms on the Members of this House in connection with Government contracts, he will introduce a measure making it obligatory upon all Members of this House to make a statutory declaration as to the shareholdings of themselves or their nominees in all British and foreign private and public companies deriving direct profits from the perpetuation of this War and lay the same upon the Table of this House?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
I do not think there is any necessity to adopt the course suggested by the hon. Member.
§ Mr. PRINGLE
Is he aware that it has been decided to introduce a special Clause in the Bill dealing with this subject?
