HC Deb 19 February 1919 vol 112 c978W

asked the Minister of Reconstruction whether he is arranging to have large amounts of building material for sale to private builders at cost and long credit; and, if so, when the first of such supplies will be available?


The Government is ordering building material for house construction and for the numerous public works, such as hospitals, schools, etc., to be undertaken by local authorities. Details as to the distribution and supply of this material fall within the spheres of my right hon. Friends the President of the Local Government Board and the Minister of Munitions.
