§ Mr. BENNETT
asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the dividends now paid by certain brickmaking companies, he will investigate the high cost of building materials in the light of such information?
The inter-Departmental Committee on the Prices of Building Materials, which is presided over by my bon. Friend the Member for the Ripon Division (Major Hills), keeps in constant touch with and investigates prices of building materials. In their last Report dated 22nd December, they state that they propose to keep298W close watch over the movements of prices in the immediate future and to review the position again as soon as a period of stability has been reached.
