HC Deb 10 July 1935 vol 304 cc329-30
21. Mr. ATTLEE (for Dr. ADDISON)

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he has already inserted a clause in contracts for aircraft supplies by which his officers may examine and verify the costs of production, as well as the general and overhead charges, of the firms concerned; what is the value of the contracts entered into under such terms; and what is the value of the contracts to which such a clause does not apply?


Formal contracts are only now beginning to issue, and I cannot therefore at this stage give any useful statistics on the lines asked for.
