HC Deb 04 April 1940 vol 359 cc323-4
82. Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that the shortage of deliveries of timber is preventing the completion of work already in progress and the carrying out of essential building schemes and repair work; and whether some supplies of con trolled timber can now be released for the execution of such work?

Colonel Llewellin

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which was given to a Question by the hon. Member for East Swansea (Mr. Mort) on 21st March. I can hold out no hope of the early release of larger quantities of timber than at present.
