§ 42. Sir R. THOMAS
asked the Minister of Health whether he has any information regarding the danger to public health in districts where the water supply is drawn from lead-bearing strata?
I do not know of any district where there is such danger. Lead compounds are found in many different kinds of rock formation, but water naturally containing lead is very rare. Water which will act upon lead pipes is not uncommon, but precautions are taken where necessary.
§ Sir R. THOMAS
Has the right hon. Gentleman any information about the impurity of the water from the Plinlimmon range?
