§ 54. Mr. Wyatt
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Defence the conditions governing the giving of information to the United States of America about British military inventions; and whether he will arrange that, in future, such information will not be given unless payment and full acknowledgment is made for those British military inventions adopted, either in whole or in part, by the United States Government.
§ Mr. Wyatt
Is not the hon Gentleman aware that there is considerable dissatisfaction among British military inventors because they are continually inventing new devices to do with warfare which are taken over by the Americans, and sometimes some slight adjustment is made and no royalties are paid and no acknowledgment is given, and the invention is then claimed as an American invention?
