§ 55. Mr. Bottomley
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he is aware that there is a shortage of bricks 59W in the North-East; and what steps are being taken to increase production in order to avoid unemployment in the building industry.
§ Mr. Sharples
There have been delays in the delivery of some types of bricks in the North-East. The brickworks in the North-East could deal with more orders, however, and I am confident that they will do all they can to meet the increasing demand.
