HC Deb 30 May 1921 vol 142 c614W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the Report of the Profiteering Sub-Committee on the Cost of Building Materials as to the existence of rings and combines among manufacturers and builders' merchants; and what steps he proposes to take to prevent the consequent inflation in the price of building materials?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on the 26th may to the hon. Member for Plaistow (Mr. W. Thorne), a copy of which I am sending him.
