§ Sir C. Edwards
asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production what are the future prospects for the Royal Ordnance Factory, Glascoed, Monmouthshire; whether after the breaking up work is finished, it is still to be retained as a royal ordnance factory or whether it is to be turned over to peacetime production; and if he will state the kind of work proposed to be done and the approximate time when it will be started.
§ Mr. Woodburn
The Royal Ordnance Factory, Glascoed, is to be retained permanently as war potential. The factory will be occupied for a considerable time to come on the breaking down of ammunition. It is under consideration for other kinds of work, but before any such work is allocated to the factory, my right hon.1698W Friend who is looking into the matter will have to satisfy himself both as to its suitability and to the possibility of economic. production.
