HC Deb 24 February 1919 vol 112 cc1390-1W

asked the Prime Minister whether orders for bricks, doors, and windows in the Government's housing scheme have entirely to be of British make; if not, where they are expected to come from; and why there has been need to go beyond our shores for the fulfilment of these contracts; and whether the rate of pay, if such are imported, are favourable to the standard in this country?


It is intended that the bricks, doors, windows, etc., ordered by the Ministry of Munitions in connec- tion with the Government housing programme shall be of British make, though some of the raw material, in the shape of timber, will no doubt have to be imported.
