HC Deb 14 May 1941 vol 371 cc1209-10
46. Sir T. Moore

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is satisfied that he is obtaining all available steel and iron scrap for the prosecution of the war effort?

The Minister of Supply (Sir Andrew Duncan)

I am glad to be able to say that we have not yet experienced any stringency in supplies of iron and steel scrap. Our plans for collection of home scrap have been based upon requirements, and the reserves known to be available at home will be drawn upon as and when required, having regard to the supplies available from abroad.
