I am aware of complaints by contractors and also by operatives that opportunities for their employment have not always been available, but it is the policy of the Ministry of Works and Buildings, as of every other Government Department, to rationalise effort in accordance with war's necessity, and, as I indicated in the latter part of my reply, the peak in the building industry has now passed, and it is growing substantially less, and I imagine that there will be still further complaints of lack of opportunities.
