HC Deb 02 November 1937 vol 328 c716
48. Mr. Day

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, as representing the Lord President of the Council, whether, in view of the shortage of the world supply of radium, he will consider appointing a committee to investigate the possible radium resources of supply in the British Isles and /or elsewhere within the British Empire?

Earl Winterton

I am advised that there is, in fact, no world shortage of radium, and that purchasers do not experience difficulty in obtaining supplies. Information as to the sources of supply, including those within the British Empire, is already available.
