HC Deb 24 June 1937 vol 325 c1398W
Mr. McKie

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will state the reason for the architects to His Majesty's Works and Public Buildings, Edinburgh, issuing schedules specifying Norwegian granite kerbs for a new telephone exchange in Glasgow?

Sir P. Sassoon

The drawings for the Central Telephone Exchange, Glasgow, specified "Whinstone kerbs," but, by an error in compiling the schedule from the the drawings, "Norwegian granite kerbs" were put into the specification. The error will be rectified and foreign material will not be used.
