HC Deb 17 March 1947 vol 435 cc24-5W
95. Mr. Medland

asked the Minister of Works to what extent he is prepared to receive applications, from cities which suffered damage in the war, for the service of mobile labour forces to erect houses, particularly in the south-west of England where building trades labour is inadequate.

Mr. Key

The mobile labour force employed by my Ministry is limited in size and, as I informed my hon. Friend on 3rd March, is already to a large extent engaged on work in bomb damaged cities, where the building labour force is inadequate. This includes the rebuilding of totally destroyed houses.
