HC Deb 16 December 1952 vol 509 c161W
84. Mr. Ian Winterbottom

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the cost to the Exchequer of work in progress remaining uncompleted as a result of the cancellation of defence contracts arising from the recent re-arrangement of the armament programme.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Until negotiations have been completed with the firms concerned, no reliable estimate can be given of the probable cancellation charges.
