HC Deb 05 July 1949 vol 466 c152W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Works, in view of the fact that a large number of bricks were available and ready for use in or adjacent to Plymouth, why his Department ordered over two million from London, over 200 miles away, recently.

Mr. Key

The bricks referred to by the hon. Member were specified for use as being suitable for a particular job; but local bricks have been used for other work undertaken by my Department at Plymouth.
