HC Deb 11 December 1967 vol 756 c25W
Mr. Prior

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works whether he is aware of the shortage of bricks in the Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth area; and whether he will take steps by consultation with the manufacturers and the suppliers to ensure that small builders have a better opportunity of receiving supplies.

Mr. Mellish:

Although brick supplies generally are now satisfactory, I understand that some local delays may still occur for orders placed through merchants. No delays now exist for orders placed directly with the major producers.
