Timber-framing company chips away at politician.
Vale of Clwyd MP Chris Ruane was speaking after an official visit to the St Asaph HQ of oak framed building specialists OAQ Ltd, a company which manufactures quality oak frames for homes, offices, garden rooms and conservatories.
OAQ chairman Allan Stockwin told Mr Ruane he was determined to introduce the benefits of oak framed buildings to the sector.
Mr Ruane said: "I am impressed with the potential of oak in terms of affordable housing and will be happy to introduce the concept to our local authorities.
"After all, we have 3,000 people on the housing waiting list in this county alone."
He added: "Personally I love the look and feel of oak.
"It is a wonderful, high quality material for quality housing. It is also good to see that this company has provided valuable employment opportunities for Welsh craftsmen and women."
Allan, who set up OAQ last year, said he was prepared to show how affordable oak-framed homes could be by building three to six low-cost yet desirable cottages on land within the area.
"If a local authority was to make that land available, I would be prepared to invest in building these very affordable homes and make them available in the market place," he told Business Post.
"We can work out the details later."
Mr Ruane said he would pass on Mr Stockwin's offer to council leaders.
