HC Deb 15 July 1926 vol 198 c595
5. Dr. WATTS

asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been called to a resolution passed by the Newton Urban District Council refusing to sanction the use of foreign coal, which will result in the district being without water and light in a few days; and what action he proposes to take to see that the needs of this locality are provided for?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)

I am informed that the council have now rescinded their resolution. The second part of the question does not, therefore, arise.
