HC Deb 19 November 1940 vol 365 c1851W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Supply whether he has any proposals to make for assisting small manufacturers engaged in the production of munitions to secure additional working capital to enable them to carry larger stocks of raw material and to provide additional plant?

Mr. Harold Macmillan

Under arrangements which have been made in cooperation with the banks, manufacturers can, where necessary, obtain from their banks additional working capital to carry out their contracts for the production of munitions. The provision of additional plant is made by the Ministry of Supply in suitable cases.
