§ 38. Colonel HOWARD-BURY
asked the Postmaster-General whether he can state the present position of his case against the Margaretting Motor Works; what has been the cost to the country of the first trial and of the appeal, which was allowed with costs to the Margaretting Motor Works; and whether he intends to proceed further with the case?
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
Proposals, still under discussion, have been made which, it is hoped, will enable the matter to be settled out of Court.
§ Colonel HOWARD-BURY
Will the hon. Gentleman answer the second part of the question, and state what has so far been the cost to this country of the first trial and the appeal, seeing that this was a very small matter of £100 and that that amount must have been considerably exceeded?
