HC Deb 25 January 1940 vol 356 c766
34. Mr. Graham White

asked the Minister of Health to what extent the cost of building camps, under the Camps Act, 1939, has been increased by the competition arising from the building of Militia camps on a cost plus profit basis?

Mr. Elliot

There has been an increase of about 15 per cent. in the cost of the more recently built camps over that of the earlier ones. The increase may be attributable to several causes and I could not say to what extent it might be due to the factor mentioned.
