HC Deb 22 March 1956 vol 550 c1440
8. Mr. R. Edwards

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to encourage the production of titanium in this country in view of the fact that this material is in short supply and stocks are required to be imported from dollar sources.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

The hon. Member's statement that titanium is in short supply is not correct, United Kingdom output is more than sufficient to meet our needs, and I understand the producers are actively engaged on developing exports.
