§ Sir W. Smithers
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to 129W 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.
