HC Deb 20 July 1926 vol 198 cc1035-6
39. Colonel DAY

asked the Minister of Pensions if his attention has been drawn to the inadequate water supply at the Ministry of Pensions hospital, Saltash, Cornwall; and whether he will take steps to remedy the resulting inconvenience and danger to the men undergoing treatment there?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

While the water supply at the Saltash Hospital is, at times, not all that could be desired, I am pleased to say that the position gives no cause for anxiety.

Colonel DAY

Is the Minister aware that sometimes the water is not turned on till 8 o'clock, so that the men cannot have their baths?


The difficulty is one of pressure, but I am glad to say that at the moment the condition is normal, and there are about 30,000 gallons in reserve.
