Mr. A. J. Williams
asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what proportional increase in the output of each of the major components of the building industry will be needed if the housing programme is to be fulfilled by 1970.; and what increases in the production of these components are currently known to be planned.
§ Mr. C. Pannell
No precise figures can be given at this stage. Programmes for the construction industries are being worked 271W out as part of the preparation of the Economic Plan, and until these have been settled it is not possible to lay down detailed requirements for materials and components.
