HC Deb 01 February 1965 vol 705 cc211-2W
70. Mr. Costain

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works whether he has now made a comprehensive survey of the availability of building materials; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. C. Pannell

I have met the producers of the key building materials. Production of these materials is being increased progressively during 1965 to levels which should generally ease the position. There may, however, be continuing difficulties over cement. I shall continue to watch closely the supply of all building materials in case further action is required.
