HC Deb 18 March 1946 vol 420 c290W
88. Dr. Comyns

asked the Minister ofSupply and of Aircraft Production what complaints he has received that the shortage of electrical material is holding up the housing programme; and if he will give an assurance that the export of such material will not be allowed to hold up housing in this country.

Mr. Wilmot

Shortage ofelectrical material is not holding up the housing programme, although supplies are not yet sufficient to meet the demand for replacements. I can certainly give my hon. Friend the assurance that export will not be allowed to hold up the housing programme.
