Sir R. Young

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how many inventions and useful suggestions have been made by Government servants in the various Departments during the past five years which have been commercially exploited by the Government; what awards have been given for these inventions and suggestions, respectively; and whether any final award has been given involving the surrender of the Crown's commercial rights to the inventor?

Lieut.-Colonel Colville

I regret that the information which the hon. Member requires is not immediately available, but I will communicate with him as soon as I have obtained it.
