HC Deb 25 October 1939 vol 352 c1427W
Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Supply on what qualifications Sir Keith Price, leading timber merchant, has been appointed Director of Chemical Warfare?

Mr. Burgin

Sir Keith Price's qualification for his present position is his past experience of this class of munitions activity. During the last war he was not only one of Lord Moulton's chief assistants from 1914, but, when the Council of the Ministry of Munitions was formed, he became the member responsible for the explosives department and for chemical warfare. He enjoys complete confidence.
