HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 c554
77. Major PRESCOTT

asked the Minister of Health whether he is in a position to make any announcement concerning the request of the constituent authorities, seconded by the Water Board and the London County Council, for an inquiry into the administration of the Metropolitan Water Board; whether the request for the setting up of a Commission has been granted; and, if so, can he state when the Commission is likely to sit and what the terms of reference will be?


Yes, Sir, my right hon. Friend is considering the composition of a suitable body to inquire into the matter referred to in the question, and he hopes to set up this body very shortly. I cannot, however, to-day make any detailed statement.
