§ 80. Sir G. Nabarro
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government why, in connection with the provisions of the Building Regulation B3, the Building 343W Regulations Advisory Committee of his Department ignored the advice and evidence of the Forest Products Research Laboratory and of the Building Research Station in connection with the use of hardboard for certain building purposes; and whether, in view of the fact that the latter two organisations are independent research stations conducted by Her Majesty's Government, he will arrange for this matter to be further reviewed at an early opportunity.
§ Mr. MacColl
The Building Regulations Advisory Committee took fully into account the advice and evidence of the Forest Products Research Laboratory and the Building Research Station. They considered, however, that the conditions necessary to make hardboard satisfactory for the purpose envisaged were not capable of effective enforcement.
