§ Mr. P. Williams
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he is aware of the shortage of steel being delivered to the shipbuilding industry; and what action he proposes to take to remedy this situation.

Yes. My noble Friend and I have met representatives of the industry and discussed the problem fully with them. My noble Friend is in touch with the President of the Board of Trade and investigations are proceeding as rapidly as possible.
