HC Deb 11 May 1948 vol 450 c203W
Mr. F. Willey

asked the Minister of Works what steps he is taking to ensure adequate supplies of cement for building work in progress at Sunderland.

Mr. Key

The extra supplies, to which I referred in the reply I gave to the hon. and gallant Members for Berwick-on-Tweed (Brigadier Thorp) and North Newcastle-on-Tyne (Sir C. Headlam) on 26th April, have been still further increased and there should now be sufficient cement for essential building work at Sunderland and elsewhere in the Northern Region.
