HC Deb 29 March 1939 vol 345 c2067W
Mr. Thomas

asked the Minister of Health whether he will state the date when the Inter-Departmental Committee on the Prices of Building Materials was first set up; and of what commodities it has examined the prices and made a report thereon since its inauguration?

Mr. Bernays

The Committee was set up on 27th April, 1923. It has under constant review the prices of all building materials and it has from time to time reported upon the prices of bricks, light castings, cement, salt-glazed earthenware pipes and fittings, and damp-proof courses and roofing felts.
