HC Deb 20 April 1948 vol 449 c125W
70. Mr. Erroll

asked the Economic Secretary to the Treasury what are the steel allocations to individual industries for 1948, expressed in tons and in percentages of monthly steel production.

Mr. Jay

Allocations of steel, as agreed inter-departmentally, are made to Departments, not to industries. It is not the practice to give details of such allocations or of the quantities subsequently authorised by Departments to consumers in particular industries.
