asked the Minister of Supply whether, in view of the difficulty experienced by small industrial units in obtaining a lair proportion of the available supplies of electric steel sheet used in the manufacture of telecommunication equipment for export, he will apply controls similar to those imposed on the distribution of mild steel sheet.
