HC Deb 18 July 1994 vol 247 cc40-1W
Mr. Spellar

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what are the latest figures for the change in price levels of building materials.

Mr. Baldry

Information on construction material price indices is published in the Department's "Monthly Statistics of Building Materials And Components", a copy of which is placed in the Library of the House. The "all work" index in table 1 indicates a rise of some 4½ per cent. between May 1993 and May 1994.
