HC Deb 03 February 1970 vol 795 c91W
93. Mr. Howie

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what representations he has had from the Cement and Concrete Association concerning the effects of the present shortage of reinforcing steel; and what action he intends to take.

Mr. John Silkin

The Cement and Concrete Association were good enough to send my Department a copy of their consultants' report on the supply of reinforcing steel. I am continuing to watch developments in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Technology.
