HC Deb 17 June 1947 vol 438 cc204-5W
81. Sir J. Mellor

asked the President of the Board of Trade for what reasons the factories recently occupied by Grantham Productions, Limited, now in liquidation, have been allocated to a syndicate headed by Mr. Cotton; and why no application from other companies has been given equal consideration.

Mr. Belcher

The group in question have acquired the assets of Grantham Productions, Limited, from the liquidators with the view to continuing the production of the tractors for which those factories are already substantially equipped, and we have accordingly agreed that the allocation should continue to them.
