HC Deb 25 May 1933 vol 278 cc1255-6
19. Mr. LEVY

asked the Minister of Health if he will request local authorities who have been invited to arrange local conferences with housing interests, in order to stimulate the erection of houses to let at low rents, to consider also the provision of adequate water supplies?


I have already issued a circular to county councils and rural district councils on rural water supplies. Supplies in urban areas are generally satisfactory, and the best course is to deal specially with any individual case which requires attention.


Will my right hon. Friend follow up those conferences with regional conferences on water supplies, dealing with the areas that could most conveniently be linked up?


That is a matter which would be best considered in relation to particular areas. If my hon. Friend has any particular area in mind, I will very gladly go into its case.
