HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 cc1639-40W
Mr. Lipson

asked the Minister of Health to which local authorities have directions been given by representatives of his department to obtain bricks of cheap quality from brick works 50 miles or more from the building site concerned, when local bricks were available at the controlled price; and why is he authorising the use of Fletton common bricks in foundations in districts where plastic clay common bricks are available locally at the controlled price.

Mr. Bevan

No general directions of this sort have been sent out from my Department. If the hon. Member has any particular cases in mind I shall be glad to investigate them.
