HC Deb 27 April 1950 vol 474 c137W
147. Colonel Ropner

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that there is a shortage of high voltage insulators; that this shortage is leading to.a delay in supplying commercial and private prospective consumers of electricity; and what steps he proposes to take to ensure that supplies of high voltage insulators are increased.

Mr. J. Freeman

Yes. I am aware that there is still a shortage of some types of high voltage insulators, but the supply is improving and will continue to improve as the measures already taken to increase manufacturing capacity become fully effective.
