HC Deb 11 March 1920 vol 126 c1552W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether periodical comparison is made between the estimated realisable value of the stocks, the property of the Ministry or of the Disposals Board, lying in a particular dump and the accumulated costs of care, maintenance, and other charges thereon?


In considering the policy of disposal regard is paid, amongst other factors, to the cost of care, maintenance, and other charges thereon, but my hon. Friend will realise that the circumstances affecting particular dumps vary a great deal, and considerable discretion has necessarily to be given to the local officers in charge of sales.
