§ 38. Mr. PALING
asked the Minister of Health the present position of the water supply of the country?
§ Sir K. WOOD
Water supplies on the whole have been well replenished by the rainfall during the winter and subsequent months, and urban undertakers generally are in a good position. In rural areas, where the primary need is for permanent supplies, good progress continues to be made under the Act of last year, and the total capital cost of schemes for which State grants have been provisionally allocated is now £3,641,000, for schemes in 1,267 parishes.
