§ 101. Mr. G. HALL
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to a -Resolution passed at the last meeting of the urban district councils of Aberavon and Mountain Ash, expressing the opinion that the shortage of houses is largely due to the high cost of building 1684 material arising from the monopoly of the combines of building material manufacturers and merchants and urging the Government at once to lane action to prevent such monopolies being carried on to the detriment of the building trades; and whether he can now state when the committee he promised will be set up to deal with the matter?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the second part, I hope to be able to announce the names of the members of the committee in the course of a few days.
