§ 56. Brigadier-General NATION
asked the Minister of Health whether he will consider plans for the construction of reservoirs submitted to him by local authorities; and, if so, whether they will receive financial assistance from the Government?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
My right hon. Friend is 364 always prepared to consider plans for the construction of reservoirs in connection with schemes of water supply, but he has no funds at his disposal for grants except where the scheme is for a rural locality under the Rural Water Supplies Act, 1934.
