§ Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the necessity of the efficiency of the steel industry in time of war, he will consider setting up an inquiry under the Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act, 1921, to inquire into the dismissal of Sir William Firth from the chairmanship of Messrs. Richard Thomas, Limited?
§ The Prime Minister
I have no reason to suppose that the efficiency of the steel industry in time of war will be adversely affected by a change in the chairmanship of this company, and I do not therefore propose to take action in the direction suggested by the hon. Member.
