HC Deb 14 June 1920 vol 130 c906W
Lieut -Colonel HILDER

asked the Secretary to the Treasury if he is now in a position to state definitely whether the requisite finance will at once be provided to enable the War Office immediately to undertake the re-instatement of the water supply of Foulness Island, of which the Government have been the landlord since 1914, and where there is a population of 450 practically without water; and is he aware that, owing to the long-continued spell of dry weather recently experienced at Foulness, they are within measurable distance of total failure of water supply in the ditches for the cattle?


Provision for this service has been made in Estimates, and work will be started as soon as possible.
