65. Mr. David Adams
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will give details of schemes of capital expenditure of national, municipal, and industrial concerns, respectively, exceeding £250,000 each, which have been deferred in agreement with the respective Ministries concerned until such times as employment through the rearmament programme is less general?
As this is a matter of considerable national interest will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to obtain the figures?
§ Sir J. Simon
The hon. Member will see that what he has asked would require a very wide survey, but I will consider his suggestion.
Is it not the position that the information is in the possession of the respective Ministries of the Government?
