§ 5. Miss Wilkinson
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is yet in a position to state when the start will be made in Jarrow on the proposed new steel works?
§ The President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Oliver Stanley)
I am informed that progress is being made with the detailed arrangements for the establishment of the works, but that it cannot yet be said when it will be possible to begin its construction.
§ Miss Wilkinson
Will the Minister during the Recess keep this matter closely in his mind in view of the real anxiety there is about it?
§ Mr. Stanley
Yes, I certainly will, but I think that in fairness to those in charge 2826 of the company, I ought to say that I know how urgently they regard the matter.
