HC Deb 26 July 1951 vol 491 cc80-1W
Mr. Mitchison

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that William Ball and Son Limited, Rothwell, Northamptonshire, are in urgent need of certain mild steel, of which he has received particulars, and without which they cannot continue their manufacture of trailers and other agricultural vehicles; and whether, in the interests of agricultural production, he will assist the company to get supplies.

Mr. T. Williams

I have been asked to reply. I am aware of the firm's difficulties, and my Department is considering how far it can help.
