HC Deb 02 May 1950 vol 474 c1565
36. Mr. Manuel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will indicate what housing components are still in short supply; and what action he is contemplating to get a ready flow of these materials to the housing authorities.

Mr. T. Fraser

On the whole, the supply of materials is adequate at present, although there is a shortage of cast-iron goods, particularly gutters; but production is still being further increased, and if orders are placed in good time housing progress should not suffer.
