HC Deb 27 November 1950 vol 481 c110W
87. Mr. Low

asked the Minister of Supply whether contracts for the supply of tanks by his factories or his depots to foreign Governments contain an escape clause, allowing termination on grounds of national interest; and how long this clause has been included in such contracts.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

There is no express clause to this effect, but there is an implied condition that delivery is subject to the over-riding needs of the United Kingdom Government.
