HC Deb 21 February 1972 vol 831 c208W
Mr. Trew

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will investigate the availability from European sources of cement, reinforcing steel and other essential construction materials whose supply is threatened by the miners' strike.

Mr. Amery

I have been asked to reply.

I am continuing to keep the supply of construction materials under review, but I do not at present consider that such an investigation would add significantly to information already held within the industries concerned.
