HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c112W
100. Mr. K. Thompson

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if his attention has been drawn to the delay in completing housing projects in Liverpool as a result of a shortage of cement which has resulted in building operatives being stood off; and if he will take immediate steps to remedy this position.

Mr. Marples

No representations have been made to my right hon. Friend by the council. He understands that, while there have been some difficulties in the area, house-building has not been delayed. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Works has asked the cement makers to increase deliveries to the area.
