§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the President of the Board of Trade what are the terms of his control over the new Cunarder Queen Elizabeth II and over the placing of contracts for the various items of work now being done to fit her for her seagoing efficiency trials; and whether it was with his agreement that a recent contract for electrical fittings went to a Dutch firm.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
The agreements relating to the loans for the construction of the Queen Elizabeth II provide that substantial expenditure should not be unreasonably incurred outside the United Kingdom. I am satisfied that in this case the terms of these agreements were not infringed.
