§ 33. Major Beamish
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what steps have been taken to study, on the spot, progressive methods of house construction and design in other countries; and what has been the result and the cost of these investigations.
§ Mr. H. Macmillan
Visits are paid from time to time by officers of my Department and of other Government organisations concerned with building, and, perhaps most important of all, by representatives of building firms and building materials producers. Results are reflected in the continual evolution of house design and housebuilding methods. It is not possible to assess the cost over so wide a field.
