§ Major Petherick
asked the Minister of Aircraft Production whether, in view of its contracts with his Department, his costing officers have ascertained, or will be instructed to ascertain, the gross amounts before deduction or allowance for taxation purposes credited, or to be credited, during the years 1940, 1941 and 1942, in respect of salary, as opposed to directors' fees, of the directors of the British Manufacture and Research Company, Limited; and whether he will give such information to the House?
§ Colonel Llewellin
The answer to the first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir." They were given confidentially to the Department. In such circumstances it is not the normal practice to disclose them.
