HC Deb 06 December 1944 vol 406 c533W
Mr. Higgs

asked the Minister of Supply in what way it is expected the production industries will compete in consumable goods made of steel when the cost of the raw material is so much above that of other countries.

Sir A. Duncan

It is too early to say at what level steel prices will settle in the post-war period, either in this or in the other main producing countries, but the Government are fully alive to the importance of the prices in this country being, so far as practicable, competitive.
