HC Deb 24 July 1940 vol 363 c818W
Mr. Nunn

asked the Minister of Supply what steps are being taken to make the fullest possible use of the Cumberland iron-ore deposits?

Mr. H. Morrison

A number of special surveys and borings have been made since the outbreak of war, as a result of which steps are being taken to open up certain new or disused workings as rapidly as possible.
