HC Deb 31 May 1916 vol 82 cc2722-3
123. Mr. GILBERT

asked the President of the Local Government Board whether he can state if any local road authorities in the Metropolitan area have intimated that they do not intend to water the roads in their districts during the summer months; and, if so, in view of the public health question involved in such action, can he state what he proposes to do with the authorities in question?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answers given to similar questions by the hon. Member for the Barnstaple Division on the 22nd May and by the hon. Member for the Kennington Division yesterday.
