HC Deb 10 March 1947 vol 434 c134W
90. Mr. D. Marshall

asked the Minister of Transport how many cubic feet of timber are contained in the temporary bridge structure across the Thames at Millbank; and, in view of the acute timber shortage for the housing programme, if he will make this timber available.

Mr. Barnes

There are some 55,000 cubic feet of timber in this bridge. The London County Council propose to dismantle it and the other two temporary bridges at an early date. Subject to the approval of the timber control all suitable timber recovered will be used for housing purposes.
