HC Deb 15 July 1937 vol 326 c1473
41. Mr. Chorlton

asked the Minister of Health whether he is able to give a report of the work of the regional water committee in Lancashire; and whether a map showing thereon the water mains of the various authorities has been completed?

Sir K. Wood

The South-West Lancashire Committee have completed their survey of demands and resources and find that the time has not yet arrived for the provision of additional resources for their region; the North, Central and South-East Lancashire Committee have carried out a similar survey and are considering the position disclosed. I understand that it has not been found necessary, in either case, to prepare a map showing the water mains of the various authorities.

Mr. Chorlton

May I ask how many meetings of the regional committees have taken place?

Sir K. Wood

I will inquire and inform the hon. Member.

Mr. Levy

Will the regional water committees issue a report?

Sir K. Wood

I will make an inquiry.
