110. Lieut. - Colonel Clifton - Brown
asked the President of the Board of Trade why a priority licence for 9 cwt. of steel has been issued to a representative of a dispenser's manufacturing business whose name has been supplied to him, when that firm has no workshop or factory in the area.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
The steel authorisation form, not, I may say, a priority licence, was issued to the office of the company concerned. The factory where the steel is fabricated is some distance away. I am writing to the hon. and gallant Member giving him a more detailed explanation of the facts of the case.
