HC Deb 14 May 1924 vol 173 c1382W

asked the Minister of Health if, in view of the admitted shortage and, in consequence, inflated costs of certain building materials and labour requisites for the construction of houses, such as bricks and bricklayers, plasterers, etc., he will be willing to appoint a Committee of Members of this House who are experts on the subject to consider and suggest alternative ways of construction or use of other kinds of materials and labour?


The questions of alternative methods of construction, the use of new materials and the fullest employment of all labour available have engaged the attention of various committees of experts from time to time, and there does not seem to be any necessity for the appointment of a Committee of Members of this House for the further investigation of these questions.
