HC Deb 19 March 1952 vol 497 c212W
58. Mr. Boardman

asked the Minister of Food whether any practical substitute for tinplate in the food-canning industry has been found; and if he is satisfied that adequate research into this subject is now being carried on.

Major Lloyd George

Alternative materials, especially glass and aluminum, are being used wherever practicable, and the industry is most actively engaged in research and experiment.
