§ Mr. H. Butler
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware that local housing authorities in London, including the Metropolitan borough of Hackney, are being held up by the shortage of bricks; and what steps he proposes to assist that authority to expedite the housing of the people.231W
§ Mr. H. Macmillan
I understand that brick deliveries for the Hackney Borough Council's direct labour schemes have now improved, and that none of these are held up. Two of the council's contractors say that they require more bricks and I am looking into this.
