HC Deb 10 July 1947 vol 439 c244W
97. Mr. Randall

asked the Minister of Supply why an application by the North-West Region of the National Coal Board for the use of buildings on the site of the Magnesium Electron Works, Hapton, Lancashire, for a central maintenance shop for the collieries was rejected.

Mr. Leonard

The whole of this factory is required for Ministry of Supply purposes. I regret it is impossible to make it available for other uses.
