asked the Minister of Aircraft Production if he is yet in a position to state the result of the inquiries into the allegations against Whatton and Sons, Limited, Wolverhampton, of excessive charges for aircraft parts; and, if not, will he give the approximate date when the inquiries will be completed.
The examination into the prices charged by this company is being pressed forward with all speed, but I am at present unable to say how soon it will be completed.
Will it be announced by the Spring?
I hope before the Autumn.
Will it be months or years or only weeks?
The hon. Member is asking for a guess, and I should say about the end of August.
Can the right hon. Gentleman give any guarantee that it will be done before he leaves office?
