HC Deb 05 June 1945 vol 411 cc710-1W
Mr. Mort

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is now in a position to state what steps are to be taken by the Welsh tinplate industry to deal with surplus capacity as a preliminary to the modernisation of the industry; and if any scheme has been submitted to him.

Mr. Lyttelton

I understand that the industry are about to submit to me a final application for the certification of such a scheme under Section 25 of the Finance Act, 1935. From preliminary discussions which have taken place on the subject, I have every expectation of being able to give the Certificate.
