HC Deb 26 January 1959 vol 598 c74W
64. Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will make a statement on what further action he has taken to secure the implementation of the agreement to deprive Herr Alfried von Krupp of his armament monopoly; and with what success.

Mr. R. Allan

I assume the hon. Member is referring to the Krupp deconcentration plan which relates to enterprises in the coal, iron and steel industries. Since the House was last given details of the progress of the plan, Her Majesty's Government have been informed that the Krupp interest in the Harz-Lahn-Erzergbau Iron Ore mining concern, worth about £2 million and certain debentures worth about £3.8 million, have been disposed of in accordance with the plan.
