§ Mr. Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for War if his attention has been drawn to the case of bribery and corruption at Bielefeld, Germany, concerning frauds in arranging contracts for the British Army; and whether he will make a statement explaining to what extent British personnel were concerned.
§ Mr. F. Maclean
I assume that the hon. Member refers to the recent trials of German citizens in the German courts for offences connected with contracts for the British Army which had been arranged and paid for by the German authorities. The evidence produced does not indicate that any charges lie against British soldiers or civilians.
