HC Deb 06 May 1927 vol 205 cc1908-9W
Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Health the comparable figures for the price of principal building materials for the years 1913, 1919 and 1926?


The following table gives information as to the published prices of the principal building materials in London in the spring of each of the years in question. It will, of course, be appreciated that prices vary in different districts.


I would refer my hon. Friend to the Table on page 102 of the Sixty-ninth Report of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue (Command Paper 2783) where he will find the latest available information in this matter; for the year 1913–14 corresponding informa- tion will be found in Table 72 of the Sixty-seventh Report (Command Paper 2227).
