HC Deb 20 May 1952 vol 501 c28W
95. Mr. Assheton

asked the Secretary for Overseas Trade, as representing the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, why lead, zinc and copper are being sold by Her Majesty's Government to British consumers at prices much above what overseas competitors in Europe and the United States of America are paying.

Mr. H. Strauss

I would refer my right hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Louth (Mr. Osborne) on 16th May last.
