§ 30. Mr. K. Thompson
asked the Minister of Works what extra production of bricks over the May figure is required to satisfy the requirements of the Liverpool house building programme; and if he is satisfied that this extra amount will be forthcoming, and, that the August and subsequent house building programmes of Liverpool will be able to proceed without delays due to shortage of bricks.
§ Mr. Stokes
I have no detailed information of the contracts placed with brick-makers by those responsible for Liverpool housing. The supply of bricks in Lancashire is increasing, and, if orders are placed in good time and there is reasonable flexibility in the acceptance of what is available, I see no reason to expect any serious difficulty.
