HC Deb 11 November 1941 vol 374 c2025
27. Mr. Selley

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the remarks of Mr. Burrell, Deputy Procurator Fiscal, and of Mr. Sheriff Gibb, when William Low Grant, a partner in the firm of T. R. Grant and Son, was sentenced at Dundee on Friday, 17th October, 1941; and will he issue the necessary instructions that persons who are convicted of these, and similar offences, shall not be employed under War Office contracts or sub-contracts?

Captain Margesson

I am aware of this case, and, in accordance with longstanding instructions, the firm has been removed from the list of War Office contractors.
