§ 55. Mr. Stokes
asked the Minister of Supply whether proceedings are taken against firms who are found to have done bad work in the production of fighting vehicles; and, if so, how many such prosecutions have taken place to date.
§ Mr. Stokes
While appreciating the Minister's difficulties in this matter, may I ask him to bear in mind that faults revealed after vehicles have been supplied have a depressing effect on the troops unless they see that some public action has been taken; and that it would give great confidence to them if they realised that complaints were being properly investigated?
