HC Deb 10 May 1948 vol 450 c173W
72. Colonel Ropner

asked the Minister of Supply what is the total amount of German scrap metal imported into this country since the beginning of 1948; and what percentage this figure represents of the amount anticipated for the whole year.

Mr. J. Jones

Between 1st January and 30th April, 1948, about 167,000 tons of iron and steel scrap were imported from Germany. I am unable to forecast how much will be delivered during the whole year.
