§ 15. Commander Maitland
asked the Minister of Health why the farms of Mr. S. Johnson, Mr. G. Shaw and Mr. C. Davidson, all of East Keal, Lincolnshire, have been excluded from the water scheme recently approved to cover this district; and if he is aware that the present water supply at Mr. Johnson's farm has been condemned and is a cause of illness and that Mr. Davidson is a dairy farmer; and what would be the extra cost of bringing the water supply to the vicinity of these farms.
§ Commander Maitland
In view of the recent Debate in which hon. Members on both sides of the House expressed their desire that something should be done to improve the water supply of rural areas, of which this is a typical example, may I plead with the Minister to reconsider this important matter? It is really a very short extension, and for the amount of assistance it is giving to property, the cost is really not too high.
