80. Major Lloyd
asked the Minister of Works what is the average number of men 93W required to build, complete, one standard house; how this average compares with that ruling in 1938; and whether the prewar national estimate in the building industry, that one man should build one standard house in one year is still applicable.
§ Mr. Wilson
Conditions are at present too various and unstable to enable me to quote any average figure for the man-hours required in building a house or to make a comparison with pre-war estimates.
