HC Deb 27 March 1945 vol 409 c1327W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Minister of Works how many millions of bricks there are in stock; and how many millions are now being made for the purpose of building houses in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Sandys

Present stocks of bricks in Great Britain are rather over 1,000,000,000 and are increasing at the rate of about 25,000,000 per month. Present annual output of bricks for all purposes is about 1,000,000,000.
