§ 68. Mr. R. GRAHAM
asked the Minister of Health whether the brick works of the country are adapted for the making of bricks in slabs of about five feet by two feet and two inches thick, and, if not, whether they could be so adapted: whether the adaptation, if necessary, would be costly or otherwise; and 431 whether from such slabs houses could be built on the principle of massed production?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I am advised that existing kilns are not suitable for the manufacture of brick slabs of the dimensions stated, and that it would be necessary to build new kilns, which would be very costly.
