§ 66. Sir F. WISE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what financial benefit the agreement with Messrs. Cox and Darks for salving the German warships has been to the taxpayer?
Lieut.-Colonel HEAD LAM
I have been asked to reply. The vessels sold to Messrs. Cox and Danks have been paid for at fixed prices; it would be contrary-to the public interest to give details of the price at which they were sold.
