HC Deb 08 May 1951 vol 487 cc201-2W
Mr. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now in a position to say whether the 19,000 extra tons of sulphur will be received in the second quarter of this year; and what are the prospects of receiving the same amount by which the first quarter's supply fell short of our minimum requirements.
