§ 81. Mr. NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether the Ministry have received for purposes of disposal any typewriters set free by the recent reduction in the staffs of Government Departments; and, if not, what has become of the typewriters so released?
§ The DEPUTY-MINISTER of MUNITIONS (Mr. Kellaway)
All typewriters issued by the Stationery Office to Government Departments for use remain the property of the Stationery Office, and when no longer required by the Department to I which they have been issued they are returned to the Stationery Office for reissue. The only Government Department, therefore, which holds typewriters is the Stationery Office. No machines have been notified to the Disposal Board as surplus to requirements by that Office, since all those returned from Government Departments are required for reissue to other Departments. I am advised by the Stationery Office that the stock of machines actually ready for reissue which is held by them is not more than a few days' supply.
