HC Deb 03 July 1940 vol 362 c838
53. Mr. Stokes

asked the Minister of Supply the amount of work entrusted by his Department to Sir Alexander Gibb and Partners since 1st July, 1939?

The Minister of Supply (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

As I disclosed the amount of the fee payable to this firm in response to my hon. Friend's Question on 19th June, I should have liked also to disclose the value of the work being done by them, so that hon. Members could have seen for themselves that the fee is small in relation to the extensive character of the works. I am afraid, however, that it would not be in the national interest to do so, but I shall be prepared, if desired, to communicate the information to my hon. Friend in private.
