HC Deb 13 November 1950 vol 480 cc120-1W
109. Mr. W. Hudson

asked the Minister of Supply whether it has now been decided to prohibit the export of asbestos cement presses to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; and, if not, if he will take an early decision on this matter.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

After consulting my technical advisers I have decided that there is no case for prohibiting the export of these presses on security grounds.
