§ 90. Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
asked the Minister of Works what percentage of building trade labour in Huddersfield is at present employed on house building.
§ Mr. Stokes
At the end of January, 1950, about 19 per cent. of the labour in the building and civil engineering industry working in Huddersfield county borough was employed on new house building. This is less than the percentage for the country as a whole due no doubt to the large amount of important industrial building in this area.
