HC Deb 02 July 1919 vol 117 cc962-3

asked the Prime Minister whether the names of contractors placed on black lists for offences of various kinds in dealing with the Admiralty, the War Office, and the Ministry of Munitions during the War but who have not been prosecuted in Courts of law will be published in a supplement to the list contained in Command Paper 107, of 1919, or whether delinquencies discovered by Government auditors or surveyors are regarded by His Majesty's Government as too confidential for publicity?


The cases referred to by my hon. Friend are not of a kind involving moral fault and to publish the names of the contractors concerned would involve serious injustice to individuals.
