No Outsourcing, Please

Reported this day in 1934:

The New Cunarder.

Mr. Craven-Ellis (U., Southampton) has given notice to ask the President of the Board of Trade in the House of Commons next Tuesday if he is aware that certain lavatory fittings of German manufacture have been specified to be used in the new Cunarder No. 534, and, as the completion of this ship has been made possible by money provided by the taxpayers of Great Britain, will he assure the House that no foreign-made fitting or equipment will be used when similar articles of an equal standard of quality and efficiency can by supplied by British manufacturers.
