HC Deb 24 October 1947 vol 443 cc8-9W
Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that Messrs. Pope Brothers, of Cricklade Street, Swindon, have been unable to complete their programme of Airey houses owing to the impossibility of obtaining joists and other materials promised them by his department; and whether he will give an assurance that all promised materials will now be delivered.

Mr. Bevan

I am aware that there has been some unavoidable delay. But the firm's immediate requirements have been met and I hope there will be no further hold-up.
