HC Deb 12 August 1919 vol 119 c1119W

asked the Minister of Health whether the price of red bricks has been advanced by 12s. and blue bricks by 15s. a thousand; and, if so, whether those advances are being permitted on the bricks in stock before the recent 6s. advance on coal?


I have been asked to answer this question. The Ministry of Munitions is not purchasing bricks of the types to which I understand my hon. Friend to refer. I should add that the price of bricks is not controlled.
