HC Deb 11 December 1919 vol 122 cc1617-8
58. Major GLYN

asked the Prime Minister whether it has been decided if the Ministry of Munitions is to be continued after the present War aftermath has been cleared up as a Ministry of Supply; whether any Government Department has since the 31st of March of this year delegated any functions for contracting, etc., to the Ministry of Munitions; and whether it is intended to return to the pre-war practice that those Ministries and Departments who require materials, stores, etc., and are responsible, for their employment should also be responsible for their purchase and efficiency on delivery?


This subject, which requires a very careful examination, is being considered, but no decision has yet been taken.
