HC Deb 20 November 1945 vol 416 cc393-4W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of works why prefabricated bungalows are put into store before being sent to site for erection; and what is the cost of storage.

Mr. Tomlinson

Temporary houses are not put into store, but as the 2,000 to 3,000 parts of each house are made in a large number of factories they are sent to distribution centres for assembly into complete house sets before being issued to sites. These centres are still being set up and meantime costs cannot be accurately determined.
