§ Mr. A. Edward Davies
asked the Minister of Works how many applications were received for building materials on work other than the construction of new houses, number of licences granted, and firms involved, in North Staffordshire during December, January and February last.
§ Mr. Tomlinson:
The number of applications received during December, January and February last for building, materials required for civil licence work other than the construction of new houses in North Staffordshire, was about 290 and the number of materials certificates issued was about 325, more than one material being required in some cases. I regret that information with regard to the-number of firms involved is not available.
