HC Deb 02 March 1921 vol 138 cc1816-7W

asked the Minister of Health if he is aware that there is a strong feeling in the country that the immediate decontrol of building material is of great importance as a means of relieving unemployment, of bringing down prices, and accelerating housing schemes and private building; and whether the Government endorse that view, and will take steps to effect promptly such decontrol accordingly?


There is no control of building materials by the Government at the present time.
