HC Deb 11 April 1940 vol 359 cc721-2W
Mr. E. J. Williams

asked the Minister of Health whether he has considered the memorandum of the Incorporated Association of Architects and Surveyors, setting forth the present difficulties of the professions of architecture and surveying, and suggesting lines upon which the Government could best assist these professions and the building industry as a whole, a copy of which has been sent to him; and what steps he proposes to implement the three suggestions contained in that memorandum?

Mr. Elliot

The reply to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I can assure the hon. Member that I share the desire of the association that the building schemes of local authorities should proceed as soon as circumstances permit and that I am keeping the position under constant review.
