HC Deb 11 July 1949 vol 467 c21
44. Mr. Beswick

asked the Minister of Works what is the current rate of brick production; and if he is satisfied that this is sufficient for current requirements.

Mr. Key

Production of bricks of all types during May, the last month for which returns have been received, was over 451 million. There are indications that the improvement in output which has taken place this year is being maintained. I am not aware of any failure to meet requirements in the country generally.
