Mr. John Fraser

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what investigations he has made into represent- tations that delays have taken place in house-building by the Greater London Council because of a shortage of steel.

Mr. Freeson

There is a shortage of reinforcing steel at present, and my right hon. Friend has taken steps, in conjunction with his right hon. Friends the Ministers of Technology and Public Building and Works, to help the Greater London Council to obtain a supply.
