asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that tenants threatened with eviction from business premises in the City of Glasgow, particulars of which have been forwarded him, include firms directly concerned with essential services, such as the production of reinforced concrete buildings; and if he will use powers to have the premises requisitioned.

In my opinion, none of the cases of which I have received particulars would justify the use of requisitioning powers.
