HC Deb 04 April 1949 vol 463 c157W
21. Mr. Drayson

asked the Minister of Supply to what extent his Department is responsible for the disposal of Commando daggers as surplus war stores; and if he is aware that these are available in certain retail shops and can be purchased by children.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

All surplus stocks of Commando knives handed over to my Department for disposal are broken down to recover the metal. None of these knives has been sold by my Department.
