HC Deb 14 August 1940 vol 364 cc794-5W
Dr. Little

asked the Minister of Supply whether he will send experts at once to test the quality of the iron ore at Dromara, County Down, which has been declared to be 25 per cent. better than the iron ore to be found in any other part of the British Isles?

Mr. H. Morrison

I am aware of these deposits, which have been the subject of discussion between my Department and the Ministry of Commerce for Northern Ireland. Arrangements have already been made to send an expert to investigate and report upon their suitability for steel making.
