HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 c1501W
Lieut.-Colonel Walker-Smith

asked the Minister of Works the position in regard to the negotiations with the trade unions initiated by the Coalition Government to secure the adoption of an effective system of payment by results in the building industry.

Mr. Tomlinson

The two sides of the Building Industry have agreed to set up a committee to consider whether it is practicable to devise such a workable system of payment by results as would lead to a further reduction in building costs. My discussions with the industry are proceeding.
