§ 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.
