HC Deb 17 December 1946 vol 431 cc369-70W
Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Works the total number of men em- ployed in housebuilding before the war, divided in the most convenient classifications available; and the total number now engaged in the same occupations.

Mr. Tomlinson

Statistics of the number of men now employed on housebuilding in Great Britain are given in Table 12 of the monthly Housing Return for England and Wales (Command Paper 6960). I regret that there are no comparable figures for the prewar period.
