HC Deb 17 April 1940 vol 359 cc967-8
56. Sir G. Gibson

asked the Minister of Supply whether his Department has foreseen and prepared for the difficulties of either processing for sale as finished goods, or for sale as raw materials, whatever post-war surpluses of Government stores may have to be dealt with by means of a Disposals Board, so that post-war losses and confusion may not arise as they did in 1919?

Colonel Llewellin

This matter is being kept in mind. The manner of disposal of such goods must, of course, be determined largely in the light of the circumstances at the time.
