HC Deb 10 February 1970 vol 795 c301W
Mr. Boyden

asked the Minister of Public Building and Works what steps his Department has taken to carry out recommendation 3 b of the Phelps Brown Committee, namely, that there should be a firm commitment of building and civil engineering scheduled starts for the next financial year, that there should be a provisional commitment of 75 per cent. of the programme for the second year and an announced preliminary programme for the third year.

Mr. John Silken

I would refer my hon. Friend to the recent White Paper on Public Expenditure 1968–69 to 1973–74 (Cmnd. 4234), which in general achieves this.
