HC Deb 01 August 1951 vol 491 c208W
84. Mr. Vane

asked the Minister of Local Government and Planning whether, in view of the rise in the cost of materials and labour since the date when he fixed the present ceiling, he will now increase the amount of house repair work which a local authority is permitted to licence.

Mr. Lindgren

No. The other demands upon the resources of the building industry preclude the licensing of a greater amount of work on existing dwellings.
