§ Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Supply if he will give an assurance that steel production figures will continue to be published on the same basis as heretofore.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss
Statistical returns on the activities of the publicly-owned companies are primarily a matter for the Iron and Steel Corporation of Great Britain, and I understand that arrangements for future comprehensive returns are at present being considered. I have no doubt that adequate production figures will continue to be published.
