Administrative / Biographical History
The Ministry of Works was established in 1943 when the Ministry of Works and Planning was split into two new Ministries. The Ministry of Works was responsible for the construction of post-war buildings and research into new building methods and policies. In 1962 the department was expanded and renamed the Ministry of Public Buildings and Works, with additional responsibility for studying the problems of the building industry. The Ministry became part of the Department of the Environment in 1970.
