HC Deb 31 October 1946 vol 428 cc128-9W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to give compensation to the directors and employees of Cable and Wireless, Limited, at least on a basis of five years' purchase of the annual amount of their remuneration at the time of vacating office.

Mr. Dalton

I cannot undertake to compensate directors who may be displaced under the Cable and Wireless Bill. As regards staff, I would refer the hon. Member to the assurances I have already given in this House.
