HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 c9W
91. Mr. J. Grimston

asked the Minister of Supply if he will make available to British industry during the present shortage the large tonnages of copper wire ordered by China and now going into storage in this country and the export of which he has forbidden.

Mr. Strauss

I am informed that no copper wire has yet been stored to the order of Chinese purchasers and, therefore, the question of diverting it to home uses has not arisen.
