§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade (Mr. F. J. Erroll)
None, Sir. The availability of future supplies of sheet steel is a matter for discussion by the motor industry with the sheet steel producers and with the Iron and Steel Board.
§ Mr. Albu
Will the Parliamentary Secretary suggest to his right hon. Friend that, before permission is given to the motor car industry to import sheet steel, in view of the serious position of our gold and dollar reserves, there should be an insistence on a definite proportion of the increase of production going to exports?
§ Mr. Erroll
My right hon. Friend is aware of that Socialist proposal, but we do not think it would be wise to act upon it.
