asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings whether he is aware that a state of confusion exists in regard to priorities of building construction; and what action he has taken or is taking in the matter?
No, Sir. I do not accept that a state of confusion exists. My Noble Friend has instituted a system of allocating the available building resources of the country to the various Government Departments in accordance with the relative importance of their essential war requirements. Within their own allocations Departments will determine their own priorities.
