HC Deb 29 January 1952 vol 495 c21W
122. Mr. Adams

asked the Minister of Works if he will make a statement upon his discussions with the industry regarding the expanded production of bricks during the current year.

Mr. Eccles

I have been in conference with representatives of the brickmaking industry, and we have jointly examined the difficulties which stand in the way of increased production. I have confidence that the enterprise and initiative of this industry, with the support and help we shall be able to give, will ensure a sufficient supply of bricks for the expanded housing programme and other essential needs.
