HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 c76W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Supply whether in view of the increasing shortage of electric motors he will give further consideration to the suggestion for setting up a mass-production factory for their manufacture.

Mr. Woodburn

Substantial expansions of factory capacity for electric motor production are already taking place. Production is limited by other factors, including a shortage of raw materials, which a scheme such as that to which the hon. Member refers would unfortunately not relieve.
