§ Mr. J. Morris
asked the Minister of Power whether, in view of the delays that have taken place in carrying out plans for increasing capacity and modernising blast and steel furnaces at one of the works of Messrs. Stewart and Lloyds, and the importance of adequate tube and pipe capacity to the export trade, he will take action himself or through other persons to provide the said facilities in accordance with his responsibilities under Section 5(3) of the Iron and Steel Act, 1953.
§ Mr. Peyton
No. I am advised that there is at present adequate production capacity for tubes and pipes.
