§ 7. Mr. Stokes
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production the name of the controller of aluminium in his Department, together with the salary paid to him?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production (Colonel Llewellin)
My Noble Friend has not yet taken over the control of aluminium, and no controller has yet been appointed in this Ministry. It has, however, been arranged for transfer of the control to take place to-morrow, and no changes in the existing Ministry of Supply arrangements are contemplated. Under these arrangements the controller is the Hon. G. Cunliffe, who is in receipt of a salary of £1,350 per annum.
§ Mr. Stokes
Can the Parliamentary Secretary tell us whether the controller is able to distinguish between an aluminium pot sent to Lord Beaverbrook and one that comes from a scrap-metal yard?
§ Colonel Llewellin
Certainly. He has very great experience in these matters.
