HC Deb 29 July 1975 vol 896 c475W
59. Mr. Loyden

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement on the progress of consideration of the proposals put forward by the hon. Member for Liverpool, Garston on unemployment in the building and construction industry.

Mr. Freeson

Action to assist the construction industry has to be taken within the present restrictions on public expenditure. But the Government have taken a number of steps which will help the industry, particularly its measures to stimulate housebuilding.
