§ 60. Mr. Russell
asked the President of the Board of Trade the extent of deposits of tin, tungsten, lead, zinc, and other nonferrous metallic ores in Britain; and how far are they being worked.
§ Sir D. Eccles
The extent of these deposits is not precisely known. There are at present two tin mines and about a dozen lead and zinc workings in operation in this country. They produce about 1,000 tons of tin, 6,000 tons of lead and 3,000 tons of zinc a year.
