HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 c1136
6. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what representations he has received with regard to the proposal to close down Hoesch, of Dortmund, for reparations; and if any decision has been taken.

Mr. J. Hynd

I am not aware that any representations have been received about this plant Under the present level of industry plan, it has been declared surplus to the German economy, and therefore available for reparations; but it has not yet been allocated to any claimant country and is still working.
