§ 47. Mr. Walker-Smith
asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is satisfied that the figure of £20 specified as the maximum recoverable by a local authority in respect of expenses incurred in the provision of a supply of water to a house under Section 138 (3) of the Public Health Act, 1936, is sufficient having regard to corn-temporary costs; and what action he proposes to take.
§ Mr. Marples
My right hon. Friend has heard of very few difficulties because of the £20 limit, but he will watch this point.
§ Mr. Walker-Smith
My hon. Friend appreciates, does he not, that if £20 was 1930 the right figure in 1936, it can hardly be the right figure today if this matter were to be reviewed?
