Outlines a survey of site practice and of mortar compositions undertaken in the North East of England by the Construction Industry Division of the Department of the Environment and sponsored by the National House Building Council, designed to investigate the type of mortars specified for housing construction and the extent to which site‐mixed mortars achieved the specification. Discloses the results of the survey and indicates that a relatively large proportion of such mortars will contain somewhat less cement than specified.
