HC Deb 01 April 1947 vol 435 cc293-4W
111. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware that Mowat's Pioneer Grit Company, Limited, of Aberdeen, have had to close down their factory and suspend a number of their employees owing to insufficient supplies of cast-iron scrap, and that they have also had to cancel export orders; and if he will take steps to enable them to obtain supplies and resume production.

Mr. Leonard

This company had not previously notified us of the position. They have now been informed of alternative sources of supply, which should enable them to carry on.
