§ 47. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
asked the Lord President of the Council what is the total compensation for loss of office or emolument that has been paid or become due from industries now nationalised
§ Mr. H. Morrison
As far as it has been possible to ascertain in the time available, I understand that the total expenditure incurred by the various Boards up to 31st March, 1950, has been about £600,000.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Lipton
In order to dispel allegations that excessive amounts 1406 have been paid, will the Lord President arrange to publish the amounts paid to the people concerned, who are said to include Members of this House?
§ Mr. Morrison
I was not aware of that. I would not like to give an answer without consulting the Ministers in charge of the Departments concerned, which I will do.
