HC Deb 18 April 1944 vol 399 c34
66. Major Sir Goronwy Owen

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works whether he is aware that, in spite of repeated promises, his Ministry has failed to ensure the supply of materials for the erection of houses for agricultural workers and that, in consequence, the Lleyn Rural District Council are unable to complete their quota of houses; and will he take immediate steps to see that the necessary materials are supplied without further delay.

Mr. Young

The Ministry of Works were asked by the Ministry of Health to arrange central purchase for certain fittings. Local authorities were informed that the Ministry could not guarantee delivery unless application were sent in by the 29th July, 1943. Lleyn Rural District Council did not send in their application until the 20th December, 1943, but I understand that the articles in question have now been delivered.
