HC Deb 11 December 1950 vol 482 cc103-4W
65. Mrs. Mann

asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware of the threatened reduction of workers in Dundyvan steel works, Coatbridge, because of withdrawal of supplies of material from the firm; and if he will take steps to increase the supplies.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

There has been no withdrawal of supplies to this works. They closed down in the earlier part of this year and have only recently re-opened. The rate of future supplies will depend on the amount of semi-finished steel available and the importance of their output in relation to the national need.
