§ 105. Mr. Blenkinsop
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what steps he is taking to ensure adequate supplies of steel to the shipyards in the north-east of England.
§ Commander Noble
I am aware that shipbuilders and ship repairers in general, including firms on the North-East Coast, are becoming apprehensive about their steel supplies. My right hon. Friend is, of course, in close touch with industry and the situation is being carefully examined with the Iron and Steel Board. If the hon. Gentleman cares to send my right hon. Friend full details of any particular instances of steel shortage, he will certainly look into them.
