HC Deb 05 May 1955 vol 540 cc1894-5
43. Sir F. Medlicott

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government if he will give the figures in respect of water supply and sewerage schemes authorised for the county of Norfolk from 1951 to the present time; and how much of the total expenditure will rank for grant aid.

Mr. Deedes

£2,493,000 for water supply and £1,564,000 for sewerage, of which £1,819,000 (water supply) and £869,000 (sewerage) rank for grant. These figures include work in the county boroughs of Norwich and Great Yarmouth.

Sir F. Medlicott

Is the Minister aware that these figures are most gratifying, particularly since they happen to come at this particular moment?
