asked the Minister of Works why German cement is being offered for sale at West Hartlepool at £6 2s. Od. per ton and at £7 7s. 0d. per ton loaded on lorry at Middlesbrough when the price of home cement is £3 8s. 6d. per ton.

This cement is being imported by private firms and the selling price is not controlled. This is not part of the 80,000 tons of cement and clinker which are being imported under arrangements made with my Department and sold at the price of home cement.
