HC Deb 23 October 1958 vol 592 c265W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Paymaster-General whether he will publish in HANSARD a table of figures giving the total steel production at the latest convenient stated date; how this compares with twelve months ago; and to what extent the steel industry is working under full capacity.
