HC Deb 10 April 1973 vol 854 cc262-3W
Mr. Ian Lloyd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what information he has on the effect of recent rises in bricklayers' earnings on the cost of houses.

Mr. Channon

Detailed information is not available because the effect on the cost of construction of houses would depend on the earnings in the particular case and also on the productivity of the bricklayers concerned.
