§ Sir R. Boothby
asked the Minister of Works to what extent increased supplies of cement are now being made available for export; and whether he will take steps to prevent the export of cement until the present shortage of home supplies has been overcome.
§ Sir D. Eccles
Cement exports since January are 75,000 tons less than in the corresponding period last year. The increase in supply is all going into the home market, and I am in close touch with the industry about the needs of all parts of the United Kingdom.
