HC Deb 07 March 1939 vol 344 cc1934-5W
Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for War what firms have been promised compensation in respect of manufacturing capacity which may be redundant at the end of the expansion period, and what sums of money have been so promised?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

There are two cases where the Department has a contingent liability, of about £30,000 in all, to increase its contribution to the cost of the firm's expanded plant, if certain orders fail to mature.
