HC Deb 07 July 1919 vol 117 cc1430-1W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what modifications have been made in the agreement as to compensation made in pursuance of Section 16 of the Regulation of the Forces Act, 1871?


The agreement described in the notices issued to the Press, of which I am sending the hon. and gallant Gentleman copies, has, as explained in the reply given on the subject on the 7th April last to the hon. and gallant Member for Central Wandsworth, been elaborated and to some extent modified on particular points, but it has not been altered in principle, except in that the companies are now allowed interest on capital expenditure, which has become productive since the outbreak of the War.
