§ 13. Mr. G. R. Strauss
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to how many applicants the Iron and Steel Realisation Agency have allotted shares in the United Steel Companies.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
About 52,000 applications were received, and in all cases shares have been allotted for either the whole or part of the amount applied for.
§ Mr. Strauss
Could the hon. Gentleman tell the House what service these 52,000 people are to render to the iron and steel industry?
