HC Deb 12 March 1924 vol 170 cc2357-8W

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that the existing machinery in the Bristol area to produce the type of brick used on housing has a capacity of approximately 35,000,000 bricks per annum; and whether he will ascertain the exact figures for the present annual production?


I am aware of the large capacity of the brickfields in the neighbourhood of Bristol. The question of the relation between present and potential output of brickfields is engaging the attention of the Government in connection with their housing proposals.
