51. Mr. C. WILLIAMS (for Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE)

asked the First Com missioner of Works if he will consider the possibility of utilising rubber in connection with any public buildings under his control, with the object of helping the industry and demonstrating the advantages of this commodity?

Mr. B. SMITH (Treasurer of the Household)

Yes, Sir. Rubber is used at present by the Department in cases where it is considered desirable and economical to do so.


Can the hon. Gentleman give an idea how much?


I should like notice of that question.
