HC Deb 13 April 1964 vol 693 cc4-5W
37. Sir B. Janner

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works whether he is aware that if the new draft Building Regulations referred to in Command Paper No. 2279 are brought into force unamended, it will thereafter be illegal to arrange for a typical library in any building in Great Britain to be panelled in English oak or English pine or other natural timber; and whether he will give an assurance that anomalies of this kind will be dealt with before the draft Regulations are revised and laid before Parliament.

Mr. Sharples

I would ask the hon. Member to await the Regulations, which are at the moment being drafted. Their application to panelling, as to other lining materials in building, is being considered in the light of the advice of the Building Regulations Advisory Committee.
