HC Deb 31 March 1947 vol 435 c255W
74. Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Supply why his Department have been recommending to inquirers in this country that electric motors may be obtained from Germany out of their current manufacture; and the extent to which he has permitted the diversion of raw materials or semi-manufactured components used in motor manufacture to be diverted to Germany from this country.

Mr. Wilmot

We have been trying to obtain supplies from Germany to help to meet our needs; but no firm orders have yet been placed. No materials or components have been diverted to Germany.
