§ 59. Mr. Swingler
asked the Minister of Works if he is aware of the continuing shortage of bricks in many parts of the country; and what further action he is taking to expand production.
§ Sir D. Eccles
I am aware that the expansion in building all over the country calls for increased supplies of building materials. The output of bricks this year is substantially above last, and nearly80W 20 per cent. more than in 1951. There are signs that the rising output has not yet reached its peak.
