HC Deb 29 June 1925 vol 185 c2030W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of German warships salvaged; the tonnage sold as scrap and manufactured for sale; and the average price per ton received by the Government and to whom was it sold?


I have been asked to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is 17 destroyers. With regard to the remaining parts of the question, these ships were sold as they lie for an inclusive price, and we have no information as to the quantity and value of the scrap sold by the firms who bought the ships.
