HC Deb 19 March 1952 vol 497 c214W
85. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Supply whether his attention has been called to an increase in road haulage charges of 10 per cent. as from 1st April; and what effect this will have on the cost of transport of materials coming under his control.

Mr. Low

Yes. The effect of this increase on iron and steel costs can be assessed only broadly. It is estimated at 3d. to 4d. a ton on the costs of steel.
