HC Deb 19 January 1965 vol 705 cc61-2W
Mr. Lubbock

asked the Minister of public Building and Works if he will give the calculations on which the expected demand for 8,400 million bricks in 1965 is based.

Mr. C. Pannell

I could make of requirements, taking into account the difficulties which had arisen during 1964, the shortage of stocks and the need to build these up to an acceptable and the plans of private developers, and other factors affecting the use of bricks.
