HC Deb 31 January 1945 vol 407 c1449
44. Mr. Astor

asked the Minister of Works whether he will obtain from the United States specimens of the modern hand-power tools mentioned in the Bossom Report with a view to their being made available for study by all parties in the building trade.

Mr. Sandys

A typical selection of the power tools mentioned in the report was brought back by the mission and exhibited both in London and in Scotland.

Mr. Astor

Are sufficient types of these tools available to enable all branches of the industry to study them thoroughly with a view to increasing house building after the war?

Mr. Sandys

I will consider that.
