HC Deb 03 July 1934 vol 291 c1747

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he is aware that lavatory seats of German manufacture have been specified to be used in the new Cunarder No. 534; and, as the completion of this ship has been made possible by money provided by the taxpayers of Great Britain, will he assure the House that no foreign-made fittings or equipment will be used when similar articles of an equal standard of quality and efficiency can be supplied by British manufacturers?


No, Sir. I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which my predecessor gave on the 23rd April last to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Wycombe (Sir A. Knox), to which I have nothing to add.
