§ Mr. Studholme
asked the Minister of Works if he has considered the complaints of the Bristol housing committee that the delay in getting temporary houses ready for occupation was due to their inability to obtain electric fittings which are controlled by his Department; and what steps he proposes to take to deal with this shortage.
§ Mr. Tomlinson
I am aware of the complaints with regard to the supply of electric fittings for certain temporary houses at Bristol, Those required both for the American and for the Uni-Seco houses have now been supplied. Electric fittings are not controlled by my Department and those required for these houses' were ordered on contract. Production has been delayed by shortage of labour in the factories.
