The minister has been referring, both last evening and this evening, to the renegotiation of contracts, and I wish he would elaborate on that a little. The contracts let by the Department of Munitions and Supply have to a large extent come to an
end, as he has said himself. In what sense are contracts being renegotiated at this stage? I can understand the liquidation of contracts owing to production cut-off, but what is the purpose of renegotiating those that are still on hand?
