HC Deb 15 October 1945 vol 414 c713W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production if he can give an assurance that the steel industry plans to erect 18 new blast furnaces have been referred to the Blastfurnace- men's Association for their comments and co-operation in determining their location.

Mr. Wilmot

The Iron and Steel Federation's long term plans for development have not yet been submitted to the Government, but it is my intention that the views of organised labour in the industry shall be taken into account before they are approved.
