asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government to what extent he anticipates the housing programme will be affected by the recent diminution in the number of building workers.

I am not aware of any recent decrease in the number of building workers, other than the normal seasonal trend.

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the appropriate information about the diminution of building workers is available to me in the published reports?

The figure in December, 1950, was 216,000, and in December, 1951, 224,000, and that does not seem to me to be a diminution.
