§ 68. Sir PERCY HURD
asked the Minister of Health whether he now intends to encourage loans for village water supplies as being works in the public interest; and how many such schemes are now before the Department for England and Wales in general, and as affecting what districts in the county of Wiltshire in particular?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
My right hon. Friend is always ready to entertain applications for schemes of needed water supply, and his staff are constantly advising local authorities on such schemes. The information for England and Wales requested in the second part of the question would have to be specially prepared. There are two schemes now before my right hon. Friend from Wiltshire, one for the parish of Westwood in the Bradford-on-Avon Rural District and the other for the parishes of Donhead St. Mary and Donhead St. Andrews in the Tisbury Rural District.
