§ MAJOR BOWLES (Middlesex, Enfield)
I beg to ask the President of the Local 1188 Government Board when an answer will be sent to the district council of Friern Barnet as to the result of the inquiry as to the supply of water to the district.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. T. W. RUSSELL,) Tyrone, S.
The Friern Barnet Urban District Council have applied to the Local Government Board to give notice to the Barnet Valley Water Company to discontinue their neglect in providing a constant supply of water to a portion of the district. The company contend that they are not in default, on the ground that one fifth of the houses in the portion of the district in question are not furnished with the prescribed fittings. The Board are now awaiting a reply to a communication which they addressed to the company on the 24th February last, and on receiving the reply they will communicate further with the District Council on the matter.
