HC Deb 01 December 1953 vol 521 cc120-1W
Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of Works to what extent current production of bricks and cement in South Wales is meeting the demands of the building industry; and if he will make a statement.

Sir D. Eccles

While there are instances of delivery periods up to five months for bricks, the brick and cement requirements of the building industry in South Wales are in general being met. Further increases in production are expected in 1954.
