HC Deb 01 May 1952 vol 499 c121W
Mr. F. Willey

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what steps he is taking to ensure that the shipbuilding industry receives its official steel allocations and receives the steel in the required sequence.

Mr. Digby

When difficulties arise my Department gives shipbuilders all possible help to enable them to obtain their allocations of steel, both in quantity and in the required sequence. I am fully aware of the problem, and I am in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply on the matter.
