HC Deb 28 April 1936 vol 311 c726
63. Mr. COCKS (for Mr. OLIVER)

asked the Attorney-General whether his attention has been drawn to a, firm of stockbrokers who are inviting the investing public to subscribe to an armament and allied pool, and basing the prospects of large profits on the grounds that the National Government were returned in consequence of a pledge that a large armament programme would be immediately entered into; and, in view of the repeated assurances that no excessive profits are to be made out of increased expenditure on armaments, will he take steps to institute proceedings against the firm for misrepresentation?

The ATTORNEY - GENERAL (Sir Donald Somervell)

My attention has not been drawn to, this, but if the hon. Member will let me have further particulars, I will consider the matter.
