§ 16. Major HUNT
asked the Minister of Munitions whether a company known as the Glyco Metall Gesellschaft, of Manchester, are contractors and sub-con tractors to his Department; whether they are employed in the manufacture of altitude gauges for aeroplanes and other important work; whether the directors of this company are all Germans and the chairman of the company, one Putz, was a member of a club known as the Schiller An salt, founded by the late German Consul at Manchester, Herr Schlagintweit, and closed by the military authorities on account of active enemy connections; whether he will give the names of the other directors and whether these are changed names j how many of the shares are actually owned by Germans; and whether it is proposed to dispose of this enemy property?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the MINISTRY Of MUNITIONS (Sir Worthington Evans)
This company has had one small contract for castings in January, 1917, before the Air Force contracts were made by the Ministry of Munitions. So far as can be traced, they do not act as sub-contractors to Ministry contractors. The remaining questions should be addressed to the Departments concerned.
