HC Deb 20 May 1943 vol 389 c1209
11. Major-General Sir Alfred Knox

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been drawn to the closing down of arrangements for the disposal of sewage by the Eton Rural District Council in the parishes of Burnham, Datchet, Iver, Horton and Wraysbury, owing to the lack of man-power, and whether he will release sufficient personnel to prevent a serious epidemic?

Mr. Bevin

My Department has already met some of the labour requirements of the Eton Rural District Council for the maintenance of its sanitary services, and further efforts are being made to meet those outstanding.

Sir A. Knox

Could the Minister send down an inspector to inquire into the situation locally?

Mr. Bevin

A labour supply officer has been sent there.
