§ 41. Mr. HIGHAM
asked the Prime Minister if, in view of the fact that there was a distinct understanding between His Majesty's Treasury and the Disposal 841 Board by which the commission or a share in the sales of the Government stores or property was allowed to be retained by one or more members of the Disposal Board, he will explain why this agreement was made; whether it still exists; and what amount has been retained by members of the Disposal Board under this arrangement to date?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of MUNITIONS (Mr. James Hope)
I have been asked to answer this question. No member of the Disposal Board has ever entered into any such arrangement as is suggested in the question.
