HC Deb 10 May 1948 vol 450 c177W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Health the number of standards of timber allocated in 1947 to nontraditional aluminium and traditional houses respectively; and similar figures for the quarter ended 31st March, 1948.

Mr. Bevan

Five thousand, nine hundred and fifty-six standards of softwood were allocated to permanent aluminium bungalows in 1947, and 3,858 standards of softwood in the first quarter of 1948. It is regretted that no figures are available on the amounts of timber specifically allocated to traditional houses.
