HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c9W
Flight-Lieutenant Beswick

asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production whether, if the stipulation on certain tender forms that duralumin sheets and strips are sold only on condition that they are re-smelted is to prevent resale for aircraft purposes, he will permit the sale for non-aircraft purposes without the necessity of re-smelting.

Mr. Wilmot

Yes, Sir. But in disposing of this material we must have regard to the position of the fabricating industry which is vital to the national interest.
