HC Deb 11 August 1966 vol 733 cc414-5W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what steps he has taken to ensure the use of Welsh-made bricks by Welsh local authorities, in view of the over-stocking and the danger of redundancies in the brick industry in Wales.

Mr. Ifor Davies

My right hon. Friend is of course concerned about the present difficulties of the Welsh brick-making industry and is anxious to be helpful to it in any practicable way. But he cannot dictate to Welsh local authorities where they should buy their bricks and other materials.
