asked the Minister of Supply the number of industrial undertakings predominantly working for his Department to which, as competent authority, he has appointed an official controller?

Authorised controllers have from time to time been appointed by the Minister of Supply to 17 undertakings in all, but in 15 of the cases the Control Order has been revoked, so that there are now only two firms with authorised controllers.
