HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 c97W
120. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Supply whether, having regard to the urgency of obtaining more scrap for the Iron and Steel Industry and in order to encourage potential sellers to come forward, he will review the prices now paid for the various grades in the light of the national urgency and the postwar rise in handling costs in this country.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

The Iron and Steel Board have recently, at my request, given special consideration to this question, but are satisfied that an increase in current controlled prices would not produce any appreciable increase in scrap deliveries.
