§ 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.
