§ Dr. Little
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply whether, in fulfilment of the promise given some time ago, he has now had samples of iron-ore taken from the mine in County Down; what has been the result of the testing process; and, if found satisfactory, whether work will be proceeded with at once?
§ Mr. Harold Macmillan
Further expert examinations have been made, but these deposits are still partially waterlogged and satisfactory sampling has not yet been possible. Arrangements have been made for a further examination to be carried out when conditions are more favourable.
