Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister or Supply the details of production at the royal ordnance factory Poole, Dorsetshire, since the war ended; how many people are employed; and to what use their production is being put.

Mr. Wilmot

Since the end of the war this factory has been making weapons for the Services on a much reduced scale. The production of electrical ceramics and internal combustion engines is about to begin. Five hundred and fifty people are employed.
