HC Deb 02 March 1948 vol 448 c58W
Mr. Haire

asked the Minister of Works the labour force, including prisoners of war, employed in the production of various building materials, with the items stated separately.

Mr. Key

The labour force employed at the end of January, 1948, on the production of the various building materials for which my Department is responsible was as follows:

labour was submitted by my Department and accepted by the Forestry Commission. A considerable proportion of this sum represents the cost of importing and housing the building workers, and of providing roads, sewers and main services at this particularly isolated site.
