asked the Minister of Munitions whether a decision has yet been reached regarding the complete material of the twenty-five locomotive engines which have been lying on the premises of Messrs. Beyer, Peacock, and Company, Limited, of Manchester, since 1914?

Mr. KELLAWAY (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions)

A conference on this subject between representatives of the Ministry of Munitions and other parties interested is to be held early this week. It is anticipated that a satisfactory arrangement for the completion of the twenty-five locomotive engines referred to in the question will be arrived at.
