Mr. Rollman reported that a private meeting of the commis sion’s steel committee, which end ed here last night, decided to forestall a future crisis in the European steel, industry by pro moting an increase in the con sumption of steel. Meanwhile, Mr. Rollman said, there was evidence that a current severe slump in the steel indus j tries of Belgium and Luxembourg was gradually being overcome. ; The situation faced by the steel I committee today was a complete reversal of that when the com imittee first began its work two years ago, Mr. Rollman said. At the beginning of 1947, a bottle neck in steel was one of the major obstacles to the postwar economic recovery of Europe. Steel pro duction lagged far behind the de mand. Labor, raw materials and equipment were in short supply, and all the steel produced found ia ready market. ! The steel shortage has now been overcome, Rollman said, and some mills have been compelled to shut down for want of orders. The steel committee at its meet ing this week formally terminated its original task of "relieving the steel shortage in Europe” and unanimously adopted new terms of reference, which were. intended mainly to relieve an anticipated steel surplus. The committee’s new task, which will require approval of the next session of the Economic Commission for Europe, will be to study European steel production and consumption trends, to inves tigate means of lowering produc tion costs and of increasing con sumption, particularly in the un derdeveloped countries.
