HC Deb 30 January 1951 vol 483 cc712-3
40. Mr. Murray

asked the Minister of Works what estimate he has made of the increased requirements of the building industry for building materials on the introduction of incentive payments under the new bonus scheme on a national basis; and how far he estimates that these materials will be available.

Mr. Stokes

It is impossible to forecast precisely the effect of the new incentive payments scheme, but I have called for a production from the principal building materials industries for which I am responsible, that would provide for a substantial increase in requirements.

Mr. Murray

Will my right hon. Friend be prepared to give the information when he obtains it?

Mr. Stokes

Yes, I will do my best if my hon. Friend will put down another question.
