asked the Minister of Works whether he is aware that building labour is being used in the rebuilding of a cinema in High Road, Wembley; and if he will take immediate steps to have this labour transferred to the essential work of housing.

Representations have been made to me from several quarters in support of the rebuilding of the cinema to which the Question refers, but I have not felt justified in licensing more work than is necessary to prevent serious deterioration of the building this winter. I am unable to accept my hon. Friend's suggestion that the work should be suspended.
