§ Mr. A. SHORT
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether, since the Armistice, any contributions have been paid or are due to be paid to certain firms because of the absence of a break clause in their contracts; and, if so, whether he will state the, nature and total of such contributions?
§ Mr. JAMES HOPE
To give an adequate reply to this question involves a detailed and exhaustive research, and I should be glad if my hon. Friend could postpone his question until Monday next.
