HC Deb 24 October 1952 vol 505 c152W
Mr. Walker-Smith

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the difficulties being incurred in the erection of authorised street lighting columns by reason of the unavailability of steel; and whether he will review the position in an effort to achieve improvement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I am aware that the need to restrict the allocation of steel for the manufacture of street lighting columns has resulted in reductions of output by the firms concerned. Larger issues of steel will be made as soon as there is an improvement in the supply.
