HC Deb 11 November 1919 vol 121 cc230-1
46. Mr. R. YOUNG

asked the Prime Minister whether the successful work of the technical costings branch of the Ministry of Munitions has been brought to his notice; and whether, in view of the fact that £300,000.000 was saved to the nation in Government contracts during the War at the small cost of £75,000, he will take steps to continue and extend the work of the said Committee in relation to all future Government contracts, and thus assist in furthering the work of national economy in all Government Departments?


The Government are considering the best way of making use in future Government purchases of the experience gained during the War.
