HC Deb 14 March 1968 vol 760 c1584
2. Mr. Arthur Pearson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether a scheme for grant under the Rural Water Supplies and Sewerage Acts has been submitted by the Mid-Glamorgan Water Board for an improved water supply to the houses, farms and cafes in and around the village of St. Hilary, Cowbridge.

The Under-Secretary of State for Wales (Mr. Ifor Davies)

Not yet. But the Mid-Glamorgan Water Board is preparing a scheme for submission and, if this is approved, it will be eligible for grant.

Mr. Pearson

Will my hon. Friend assist this little community by getting the Water Board to move quicker in bringing forward the water supply?

Mr. Ifor Davies

In fairness I should say that the Board has very large schemes in progress or under consideration, but is short of professional staff. I understand that it is hoping to submit proposals within the next three months.
