Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Education how many priority certificates for building materials have been issued by the Birmingham office of her Department in the last six months; to which local authorities; and for what reasons.

Miss Horsbrugh

Twenty-four priority certificates for steel have been issued by my Department during the last six months to the following authorities in the Midland region: Warwickshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire, Stoke-on-Trent, Burton-on-Trent, Walsall, Birmingham and Wolverhampton. Issue has depended on various factors, including the quantity of steel required, the size of the project and the progress of construction.
