HC Deb 10 December 1919 vol 122 cc1311-2
52. Mr. L. LYLE

asked the Prime Minister whether the Allies are, under the terms of the Peace Treaty, making provision to ensure that the chief German works associated with the manufacture of war material are no longer devoting themselves to this object; whether he can state the present and contemplated employment of Krupps; and whether it will be permitted to carry on as hitherto its activities in stirring up world trouble to assist it in selling its wares?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and to the last part in the negative. His Majesty's Government have no precise information with regard to the second part of the question. Such information as is obtainable, however, indicates that the Krupp Works are undergoing conversion to the manufacture of commercial articles.
