HC Deb 15 December 1952 vol 509 c125W
Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Supply if the word "Forging" in item 5 of the Third Schedule of the Iron and Steel Bill includes hot pressing.

Mr. Sandys

The word "forging" is not intended to cover what is usually meant by "hot pressing." I am, however, at present engaged in technical consultations as to whether item 5 of the Third Schedule as at present drawn, may not go somewhat wider than is intended and, if so, how this can best be rectified.
