HC Deb 09 July 1952 vol 503 cc99-100W
Mr. Pryde

asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware that shortage of steel is hampering progress in the building of schools in Midlothian; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. J. Stuart

I have been asked to reply. I am aware of the general steel position and of its repercussions in Midlothian. The hon. Member can be assured that every possible consideration has been and will be given to Midlothian's needs when steel is allocated to schools.
