HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 c1057
5. Mr. Marples

asked the Minister of Health when the Committee appointed by him on 5th June, 1947, to keep under review the costs of house building will be making their recommendations.

Mr. Bevan

This is a matter for the Committee to decide and I have no information on this subject at present.

Mr. Marples

Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that a Committee of this nature will give news and not history, and that it will be no help to the trade at all unless the report is published.

Mr. Bevan

I would not be as discourteous as the hon. Member in reflecting on the Committee.
