HC Deb 22 March 1917 vol 91 c2076W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether, having regard to the high price of timber and the difficulty in obtaining freights for the importation of supplies from over the seas, he will ascertain if his Departments are making the fullest use of concrete, which is a material entirely of Home production and which can so often be used instead of timber for constructional purposes?


The question of using concrete and ferro-concrete for constructional and other purposes is being carefully considered by the War Office in conjunction with other Departments.
