§ 27. Mr. THURTLE
asked the Minister of Health when the inter-departmental Committee on the Prices of Building Materials last met?
The last meeting of the main Committee was on the 3rd March last, and I understand that it is meeting again to-day.
§ Mr. THURTLE
Does not the right hon. Gentleman think that, if this Committee is to exercise any effective control over building prices and materials, it ought to meet more frequently than that?
No, Sir. It does not follow that because the Committee has not met at much more frequent intervals it has been idle. A great amount of negotiation and discussion have been going on apart from meetings.
§ Captain GARRO-JONES
Has the right hon. entleman for ever shelved the recommendations of the Linlithgow Committee, which made certain specific recommendation with regard to the control of prices?
I should have to refresh my memory as to what the recommendations of the Linlithgow Committee were before I answered that question.
