§ MR. HARRY SAMUEL
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, in view of the satisfactory progress in public business, he is now in a position to fix the date when he will introduce the Bill for the benefit of the water consumers of the Metropolis?
§ MR. CHAPLIN
I have not had an opportunity of discussing the matter with my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House, and I cannot say the exact date when the Bill will be introduced; but it will be introduced shortly.
