§ 93. Sir WALTER de FRECE
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the certain shortage of building material, he will consider the desirability of employing available and serviceable unemployed labour on schemes of increasing output?
§ Lord E. PERCY
There is no evidence at present of any general shortage of building materials, but I have no doubt that manufacturers will increase the employment of serviceable labour up to the limits of their output capacity if they are warranted in so doing by the demand for their products.
§ Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
Is the Noble Lord not aware that there is just now a great shortage in bricks?
