asked the Minister of Works if he will give a list of materials or equipment in short supply that are preventing the completion and occupation of both emergency and permanent homes; and will he cause such a Report to be issued monthly after the first of the year.

Although there are local shortages of labour and materials from time to time, there is no general hold-up in the completion of temporary and permanent houses. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of a leaflet which has been published indicating the materials and components the supply of which is not-sufficient to meet all demands in full, and I would also refer him to the reply given to him yesterday.
