asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the advisability of appointing a committee to see how far it may be practicable to impose a special tax on the profits arising out of the Government's re-armament programme?
No, Sir. I do not consider that the appointment of such a committee is called for.
If such a tax is practicable, does not the right hon. Gentleman think it is desirable?
I hope it will not be found to be necessary.
Sir W. BRASS
Would it not mean an examination of all sub-contracts as well as main contracts?
