HC Deb 20 July 1953 vol 518 c1W
9. Mr. Hale

asked the Minister of Materials, in view of the world shortage of sulphur and the existence of large sulphur deposits in Indonesia, whether he will initiate discussions for a long-term bulk-buying agreement which could lead to the development of these deposits.

Sir A. Salter

The information available to me does not suggest that Indonesia is a promising potential source of supply of sulphur for this country. Perhaps the hon. Member will let me know any sources of information he has in mind which are relevant to the Question he raises.
