HC Deb 09 April 1948 vol 449 c33W
Mr. McCorquodale

asked the Minister of Works what quantity of bricks is at present being imported.

Mr. Key

Import licences were granted prior to June, 1947, for about 46 million facing and seven million common bricks from Belgium and Holland. No licences have since been granted. I have no information as to any quantities outstanding on these licences. No bricks have been imported on Government account since August, 1947.
