84. Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Minister of Supply what arrangements have been made by his Department as to the future of Tullos Limited, Aberdeen.

Mr. Sandys

Tullos Limited have agreed to terminate their lease of the Ministry of Supply factory at Aberdeen on 1st May, 1952, so that it may be used for production for the defence programme by Consolidated Pneumatic Tool Company, Limited. Every effort is being made to ensure that the arrangements for the take-over cause as little inconvenience as possible on the Company.

118. Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in view of the fact that Tullos Limited are making agricultural machinery for export and that they are in an unemployment area, increased supplies of steel can be made available to them.

Mr. J. Stuart

Tullos Limited have been authorised to acquire their fair share of the steel available for the agricultural machinery manufacturing industry in Scotland. It is not possible to give them preferential treatment.
