HC Deb 10 May 1965 vol 712 cc25-6
38. Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what steps he is now taking to promote the industrialisation of building in the light of the recent appraisal of the problem presented to the Royal Institute of British Architects, a copy of which has been sent to him.

Mr. Boyden

Many of the recommendations of the report are already accepted and acted upon in this and and other Departments. I am examining its detailed conclusions to see if further action is called for.

Mr. Lloyd

Is not this a particularly opportune moment to press on with the industrialisation of building to take up some of the gap left by the wholesale failure of the Government's housing policy?

Mr. Boyden

The industrialisation of building has been proceeding smoothly for some time. The answer to the second part of the supplementary question is, "No, Sir".
