HC Deb 20 April 1939 vol 346 cc524-5W
Mr. Kirkwood

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will state the total monetary value of the orders placed in Scotland by the Navy, Army, and Air Force since the commencement of the rearmament programme?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I fear that the collection of the information desired by the hon. Member would mean imposing on the Departments a great deal of additional work which is very undesirable under existing conditions of pressure.
