§ Mr. ROLAND ROBINSON
asked the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence whether, in view of the necessity of adequate supplies of tin being available at home in the event of war, he will consider what steps should be taken to secure a larger home production of this metal from the Cornish tin mines?
§ Sir T. INSKIP
The Government are not contemplating any special steps of this kind. But as I explained during the1554W course of the Debate on the 20th July, work is being undertaken to ensure a sufficiency of supplies of all essential raw materials in the event of emergency.
