§ Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works if he will make a statement on the shortage of building materials in Fife and in Scotland generally; and what short-term steps he is taking to overcome these deficiencies.
§ Mr. C. Pannell
The present shortages of some building materials constitute a national problem. I am in touch with the suppliers of the principal materials concerned who are already taking action to increase their manufacturing capacity.
