HC Deb 05 August 1975 vol 897 cc107-8W
Mr. Stephen Ross

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment why there is a shortage of common bricks on the Isle of Wight.

Mr. Armstrong

There is generally no shortage of common bricks, but during the current holiday period delivery times have lengthened slightly. I am informed that once the holiday period has passed any temporary supply difficulties should be overcome.
