HC Deb 03 November 1947 vol 443 c162W
104. Major Bruce

asked the Minister of Supply whether he has explored the possibility of using the facilities offered by the Royal Dockyards in Great Britain for the production of a wide range of tools and equipment for industry and agriculture, in addition to the civilian work already being performed there; and what steps he proposes to take to place orders with the Royal Dockyards for this purpose.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

Yes. My Department is in close touch with the Admiralty on this question, and the possibility of making further use of such capacity as is available is being examined.
