HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 c75W
100. Mr. McKie

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement regarding the notification of the availability for disposal of the munitions factory at Dalbeattie, Kirkcudbrightshire.

Mr. Belcher

This factory has recently been declared surplus to Government requirements. In its present form, it is suitable only to a limited extent for peacetime production, but the Board of Trade will endeavour to make arrangements for it to be used to the best possible advantage.
