HC Deb 06 February 1951 vol 483 c1520
31. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Minister of Labour what is his most recent estimate of the number of building workers in the Armed Forces and employed in working for the Armed Forces.

Mr. Lee

I regret that this information is not available.

Mr. Hughes

Friend the Minister of Labour the suggestion that just as miners have been released to dig more coal, we need the building workers out to build more houses?
