HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c580
11. Mr. Vane

asked the Minister of Works what proportion of the total available asbestos sheets is at present allotted to agricultural buildings, both for new construction and repairs.

Mr. Tomlinson

I regret that the information for which the hon. Member asks is not available, as no fixed allocation is made for agricultural buildings, and no special record is kept of deliveries for this purpose.

Mr. Vane

Can the Minister say, at least, that agricultural work is not completely ruled out when the asbestos is available?

Mr. Tomlinson

No, it is not ruled out. Supplies are made under the priority scheme.
