HC Deb 13 May 1948 vol 450 cc242-3W
Mr. Sharp

asked the Minister of Supply whether the salvage and sale of the material used in the Pluto pipeline have now been completed; and what are the approximate respective costs and receipts to the latest date for which such information is available.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

It is expected that the salvage of the Pluto pipelines will be completed by the end of this year. By 31st March, 1948, about 225 miles had been recovered at a cost of about£315,000. The salvaged pipeline contained lead and steel of an estimated value of£400,000; about three-quarters of it had been sold at that date for£299,000.
