HC Deb 12 March 1947 vol 434 cc204-5W
106. Mr. Stokes

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether Messrs. Menck & Hambrock, manufacturers of mechanical excavators of Hamburg-Altona will be dismantled for reparations: or whether, as one of the leading manufacturers of this type of plant in the British zone, they will be got into full production in the general reconstruction scheme.

Mr. J. Hynd

No final decision has been taken on this plant which stopped work recently owing to lack of electric power. It is hoped that power and materials will shortly be available to enable the plant to operate again.
