§ 27. Mr. Harrison
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the fact, which has been drawn to his notice, that members of the National Master Builders' Association have adequate stocks of materials to hand to build houses for private sale, he will look into this matter with the object of utilising these urgently-needed materials for the housing schemes that are being held up by shortages of such materials.
§ Mr. Harrison
Can the Minister say why master builders are so keen to build houses for private sale instead of for public schemes?
§ Mr. H. Hynd
If my right hon. Friend can find any surplus materials will he try to divert them for urgently needed repairs to existing property?
