HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c61W
99. Mr. Janner

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty to what extent it has been found possible for the Royal Navy to adopt the use of nylon rope made in this country.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

The purposes for which nylon rope is at present used in the Royal Navy are few because, as the hon. Member was informed on 14th July, so much of the productive capacity available is taken up in meeting export demands.
