33. Major Braithwaite
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings whether he will consider the appointment of a small representative delegation to visit the United States of America to examine the newer building methods in that country and report to his Department?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings (Mr. Hicks)
My Noble Friend is obliged to the hon. and gallant Member for his suggestion, to which he is giving consideration.
Colonel Arthur Evans
Will my hon. Friend when giving consideration to this matter bear in mind that American building methods result in costs which are 30 per cent. below what is payable in this country?
