HC Deb 26 July 1965 vol 717 cc13-4W
59. Mr. Murton

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what action he is now taking to relieve the acute shortage of cement in Dorset.

Mr. C. Pannell

The situation is similar to that in the country as a whole. I have asked the suppliers to give priority to local authority housing and essential work. If the hon. Member has details of any particular complaints, I will bring them to the attention of the suppliers. Shortages have been reported virtually from all parts of the country.
