HC Deb 20 May 1930 vol 239 c207
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?


Proposals, still under discussion, have been made which, it is hoped, will enable the matter to be settled out of Court.


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?


I am not in a position to answer that question. The costs have not been assessed.
