1.

asked the Minister of Supply what civilian commodities are now being produced at Radway Green Royal Ordnance factory; what is the current monthly output; and how many men and women are engaged on the work.

The principal civilian commodities in production at this factory are oil engine components, cookers and brass strip. It is not the practice to give the distribution of employment and details of output at individual factories.

Will the Minister tell us when it is expected that the factory will be in full production?

Can the Minister say why the House is denied information on the points mentioned by the Minister in connection with the goods produced for this purpose?

It has not been the practice to give this information about individual factories.

There are security reasons for the distribution of the labour force over the Royal Ordnance factories, which it would not be right to give.
