HC Deb 31 July 1919 vol 118 c2313W
Lieut.-Colonel HILDER

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the importance of expediting the construction of houses under the Government housing scheme, and having regard to the limited supply of labour available for this purpose, he will take the necessary powers to enable him, whenever requisite, to transfer labour employed on buildings which, in his opinion, are not of national importance?


The whole question of the steps that it may be necessary to take to restrict the use of labour and materials on buildings not of national importance is being carefully considered, and I regret that I am not in a position to make any further statement at the present time.
