§ 68. Mr. Hepworth
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the maximum use 2048 is being made in all Air Ministry contracts of offers of sub-contracting?
§ The Secretary of State for Air (Sir Kingsley Wood)
A substantial amount of sub-contracting already exists but it is my intention to give full consideration to all possibilities of the further utilisation of such resources.
§ Mr. Louis Smith
Is the Minister aware that, in Sheffield, many of the smaller firms are anxious to tender for sub-contract work, in connection with the air service; and will he get in touch with the Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, who can place all the necessary information at his disposal?
