§ 55. Mr. MAURICE HEALY
asked the Minister of Munitions the cause of the delay in supplying the machinery for the Cork National Shell Factory; when it is expected that the machinery will be forwarded; and when work is likely to be commenced at the factory?
§ Dr. ADDISON
The delivery of machinery for the factory to which the hon. Member's question refers is nearly complete. Some delay has been occasioned by difficulties in connection with the foundations of the hydraulic press, but every effort is being made to commence operations at the earliest possible date. May I take this opportunity of again inviting Members to refrain from naming particular factories in questions? If the Ministry is informed privately of the factory referred to, care will be taken that the hon. Member is given as fully as possible the information he is seeking.
Mr. H EALY
Can the right hon. Gentleman answer the final part of my question—when the work is likely to be commenced?
