HC Deb 27 April 1948 vol 450 cc28-9W
59. Air-Commodore Harvey

asked the Economic Secretary to the Treasury what are the steel allocations to individual industries for 1948.

Mr. Jay

I would refer the hon. and gallant Gentleman to the reply given to the hon. Member for West Fife (Mr. Gallacher) on 10th February.

61. Mr. Turton

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the tonnage of steel allocated to manufacturers of agricultural machinery and spares during the first six months of 1948 will now be as great as the allocations of the whole of 1947; and whether he is now in a position to state the scale of the final allocations for the last six months of 1948.

Mr. Jay

The answer to the first part of the Question is, "Yes," and to the second part, "No." Allocations of steel have not yet been made for the last quarter of 1948.
