asked the Minister of Labour, in view of the housing situation, how many more workers were employed in the building industry, as recognised for Class B purposes, at the end of September, 1945, than at the beginning of August, 1945.

I have consulted my right hon. Friend the Minister of Works, who informs me that returns are obtained on a quarterly basis and separate figures for the beginning of August and the end of September are not available.

Will the Minister give the House an assurance that, in view of the slownessof the Minister of Health in getting on with the housing programme, he will give his right hon. Friend every assistance he can?
