asked the Minister of Supply whether he is satisfied that all available world supplies of machine guns of suitable 303 types have been thoroughly investigated?

I am satisfied that all suitable steps have been taken, and continue to be taken, to investigate all possible sources of supply of machine guns of suitable types.

Is the Minister aware that the Ministry of Supply has been satisfied about everything for the last six months, and will he make sure that the satisfaction which has been reported to him is not part of the general complacency of that Department?

I cannot answer for the Ministry of Supply during the last six months.
