HC Deb 16 June 1953 vol 516 c37W
16. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Works what inquiries he has made regarding the shortage of bricks in the Rugby area; and what answer he has received.

Sir D. Eccles

Since the hon. Member's Question on 28th April, I have had one complaint from the Rugby area. My regional office is in touch with the makers and users of bricks in the area where the expansion in building has caused a heavy demand for building materials. Local brickmakers are increasing their output somewhat more than the average increase for the country.
