HC Deb 16 June 1953 vol 516 cc45-6W
69. Mr. Skeffington

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many firms in the United Kingdom manufacture moulding powders used in the plastic industry; and if he is satisfied that new entrants to plastic manufacture can obtain supplies of moulding powder.

Mr. H. Strauss

I understand that there are about two dozen such firms and that their products are, in general, freely available to manufacturers. If the hon. Member has a particular case of difficulty in mind, perhaps he will let me have particulars.
