§ MR. H. S. SAMUEL (Tower Hamlets, Limehouse)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, if he can give the House any information as to the result of his endeavours to obtain from the neighbouring Companies a supply of water for the East London Water Company sufficient to enable it to carry out its obligations to its customers?
§ MR. E. H. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)
asked whether the right hon. Gentleman was aware that, while the East London Water Company published notices restricting the supply to six hours a day, they did not specify the hours, and last week, in various parts of the East End, water was turned off without any notice whatever. Would the right hon. Gentleman impress on the Company the importance of giving adequate notice as to the hours?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT ROARD (Mr. HENRY CHAPLIN,) Lincolnshire, Sleaford
I have already done that, and I have put all the pressure I can upon them, and no doubt effect will be given to the representations. I have not yet received any information which enables me to state that a definite arrangement has been made, but I am doing everything that I can to bring about an agreement between the two companies in this matter.
