HC Deb 15 December 1937 vol 330 c1159
51. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence whether, in view of the importance of wireless and the wireless industry in the event of war, he will state what steps he has taken to ensure that manufacturers of wireless apparatus will be in a position to extend their factories as and when the need arises?

The Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence (Sir Thomas Inskip)

I am advised that, as a result of investigations which have been carried out, it has been found that manufacturing capacity already exists which would be capable of producing the wireless requirements for the defence of this country in war.
