HC Deb 26 November 1957 vol 578 c962
12. Mr. Moss

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is willing to reconsider his refusal to approve for grant the Polesworth, Dordon and Warton Sewerage and Sewage Disposal Scheme submitted to him by the Atherstone Rural District Council, in view of the representations made to him by the hon. Member for Meriden.

Mr. H. Brooke

I am looking at the case again and will write to the hon. Member.

Mr. Moss

While appreciating that the right hon. Gentleman may not have had sufficient time to obtain a more informative answer for today, may I ask whether he is aware that in this case there are very cogent arguments on a matter of great local importance? Will he therefore consent to receive a deputation composed of representatives of the local authority concerned and myself?

Mr. Brooke

I will consider that. Perhaps the hon. Member will first give me a little more time to look at the case again.
