HC Deb 05 December 1939 vol 355 cc475-6W
Sir W. Edge

asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he will consider making greater use of British stone in the construction of camps, with the object of reducing the amount of unemployment in the quarrying industry?

Mr. Ramsbotham

I regret that the conditions under which the present temporary building programme of my Department must be executed preclude the use of stone.
