HC Deb 30 October 1956 vol 558 cc132-3W
91. Mr. Kimball

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, as a result of consultations between the Iron and Steel Board, the British Iron and Steel Federation, and the National Association of Iron and Steel Holders, he has now been able to improve the supply of iron and mild steel for rural craftsmen.

Mr. Low

The inquiry about which I informed my hon. Friend in September is not yet complete. But I understand that there has been a further increase in total supplies of the small sizes of iron and steel which are normally used by rural craftsmen.
