§ 80. Mr. P. Williams
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether, as a result of the Civil Lord's visit to the North-East, he will give any further assurances about increased supplies of steel to the shipyards.
§ Mr. T. G. D. Galbraith
Supplies of steel to the shipyards on the North-East Coast during the first nine months of this year show an increase of 6.7 per cent. over the supplies during the corresponding period last year. I hope this improvement will continue.
