§ 64. Mr. Lipson
asked the Minister of Health if plant, material and labour will be as available for the medium-sized and 1970 smaller local firms as for the large contractors to enable the former to obtain their fair share of the contracts for the work of advance preparation of housing sites.
§ Miss Horsbrugh
As my right hon. Friend has previously stated no suitable firm is debarred from tendering. Labour and materials will be made available for any approved contract and plant to any suitable firm.
§ Mr. Lipson
Does that mean that no preference will be given to selected large contractors who have been successful in obtaining contracts during the war at the expense of the small contractors?
