HC Deb 24 July 1873 vol 217 c903

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether his attention has been drawn to a letter in "The Times" of the 19th instant, in which it is stated that owing to the want of supply of water a house was destroyed by fire in Weymouth Street between two and three in the morning?


in reply, said, that his information was consistent with that contained in another letter on the subject which, perhaps, the hon. Gentleman had seen, in which it was stated that there had been no deficiency of water and no delay in its supply.
