HC Deb 02 December 1920 vol 135 c1438

asked the Minister of Health whether the Government will put in hand, without delay, a temporary comprehensive scheme for providing all classes of material required for house construction in this country, such as bricks, tiles, cement, etc., together with the usual materials required for road-making, thus absorbing many unemployed and reducing the cost of erecting houses?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Dr. Addison)

I do not think that it would be practicable for the Government to undertake such a scheme as the hon. Member suggests, or that, if they did, it would produce the results which he desires.
