HC Deb 14 August 1940 vol 364 c794W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Minister of Supply what steps have been taken to provide suitable electric supply for machine tools from the United States of America with motors suitable only for French supplies?

Mr. H. Morrison

The electrical trade have been consulted and are co-operating fully with the Machine Tool Control so that any machines which require electrical alterations can be put into service with the minimum of delay. In some cases alterations are being made to electrical equipment and in others simple stationary transformers are being added to permit the original electrical equipment to be used.
