Mr Ward d asked the Minister representing the Minister for National Development, upon notice -

How many companies engaged in (a) brick and tile manufacture, (b) timber milling, (c) manufacture of building appliances and accessories and (d) furniture manufacture have been compelled to cease or reduce production during the past eighteen months on account of slackening demand for their products?

Mr Beale - The information desired by the honorable member is not available in the form sought by him. Latest statistics available show that there was some decline in the overall production of most building materials during 1956 compared to the levels of production in 1955.
