§ Mr. Boyden
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what steps he is taking to overcome the shortage of facing bricks.
§ Mr. Rippon
In February and March the output of facing bricks reached record figures amounting to an increase of over 10 per cent. for the previous record for this two-month period. Many brickmakers have been taking steps to increase their capacity and I am confident that the brick industry will do all they can to meet the demand.
