HC Deb 25 October 1920 vol 133 c1384W

asked the Minister of Health what steps the Government propose taking to ensure that an adequate number of building trade operatives are employed on the work of erecting working-class houses, in view of the overwhelming proportion which is at present engaged on other types of building?


I have already referred the hon. Member to the statement made by the Prime Minister last Tuesday. In addition the Government in the Ministry of Health (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill at present before the House propose to strengthen the powers for prohibiting building operations which interfere with the provision of dwelling houses.
