HC Deb 07 July 1948 vol 453 cc372-3
48. Mr. Platts-Mills

asked the Minister of Defence what arrangements have been made for the manufacture in Great Britain of armaments which are to be standardised on the U.S. pattern.

Mr. Alexander

None, Sir.

Mr. Platts-Mills

Does that mean that the United States will have a complete monopoly of armament manufacture for Britain and Western Europe, and if so, will the Minister tell that to the heavy industrial workers?

Mr. Alexander

No, Sir.
