HC Deb 03 March 1947 vol 434 c1W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Supply to what extent royal ordnance factories have been adversely affected by the fuel problem; how many have been closed down; and how many have been compelled to resort to short time working.

Mr. Wilmot

The royal ordnance factories have been affected by the fuel problem in the same way as other factories in the same areas. Nine have been closed for varying periods, but they have all now started work again. None has resorted to short time working.
