HC Deb 05 February 1941 vol 368 c918
12. Mr. Loftus

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Aircraft Production the total amount paid in management fees in respect to shadow factories for aircraft production up to the latest available date; or, alternatively, for the years 1939 and 1940?

Colonel Llewellin

On more than one occasion prior to the commencement of the war figures were given to the House showing the amount of management fee attributable to each airframe and engine produced from the shadow factories. If, therefore, I were to give the figures asked for by my hon. Friend, I should be giving information to the enemy which neither he nor I would wish to give. I shall, however, be delighted to show my hon. Friend any figures which he wishes to know.
