§ 19. Mr. Stokes
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how many mechanical excavators, universal type, it is proposed should be manufactured in Germany annually under the level of industry plan; and by which firms.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The level of industry plan does not specify any particular programme of excavator production, nor place any limitation on the numbers of excavators that may be manufactured, nor does it specify the firms by which they may be made. I hope that I shall be in a position to give my hon. Friend some factual information on the subject of excavator production in Germany in reply to the further Questions which he has tabled later in the week.
