HC Deb 17 December 1936 vol 318 cc2614-5
40. Mr. RIDLEY

asked the Minister of Health what steps are being taken by him, in conjunction with the Blackwell Rural District Council, to re-house the tenants of houses in Meadow Row, Pinxton, Derbyshire, as to which a demolition order was confirmed by him in May, 1936?

The MINISTER of HEALTH (Sir Kingsley Wood)

I have approved the acceptance of tenders by the rural district council and sanctioned loans for the erection of 34 houses in the parish of Pinxton and for the construction of the necessary roads and sewers. The council propose to use 20 of the houses for rehousing persons displaced from Nos. 27 to 46, Meadow Row, Pinxton, by the operation of a clearance order confirmed by me on 4th June last.


May I ask my right hon. Friend whether, when he passes the plans for these new houses, it will be part of the duty of the local authority to see that there is an adequate water supply?


I hope so.
